Strap on some snowshoes & discover your own winter wonderland! Join us at Hitchcock Nature Center for a snowshoeing adventure through the beautiful Loess Hills at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 25th or Saturday, February 8th.
During this workshop participants will learn skills and techniques needed to enjoy their own snowshoe adventure in an indoor presentation and demonstration before getting the chance at some hands on practice on their own snowshoe hike in the great outdoors. Following our outdoor practice participants may enjoy a cup of cocoa to warm up & then are welcome to continue their practice outside if they wish. All snowshoes must be returned to the Loess Hills Lodge Welcome Deck by 4:45 for check in.
