February 22 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
The Winnebago County Conservation Board and the NIACC Community Education Program are teaming up to offer a fun program on Beginning Snowshoeing!
The program will be held at Pilot Knob State Park on Saturday, February 22nd from 1:00-3:00 PM. It will begin at the warming house across the pond from the office and will continue along the park trails. The program will offer participants an introduction to snowshoeing, including a brief history of snowshoeing, different types of snowshoes, and snowshoeing techniques. After the indoor introduction, everyone will head outside to try out this fun activity! Snowshoeing is a wonderful way to get outdoors in the wintertime and enjoy areas that might not be accessible otherwise. It’s also an excellent way to get some exercise at a time of year when exercise can be hard to get!
The cost for the program is $15.00 and covers the instruction, handouts, use of snowshoes, and refreshments.
Program registration is required by contacting NIACC at 641-422-4358, extension 4358, and registering for Course #5795.
