Many animals get around in winter by walking on top of the snow. Snowshoes help us do the same. During this basic introduction, we’ll learn how to walk using snowshoes and discover first-hand how they help us move more easily when snow is deep. We’ll try our new-found skills on a guided tour along Five Rivers’ trails. Please call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register by Wednesday, January 15 and to reserve snowshoes if you don’t have your own.
