Learn some of the history of snowshoeing and then try them out yourself for a walk along the Old Field trail.

You’ll come away with a newfound appreciation for snowshoeing, which is far more than an outdoor sport. Snowshoe rental fees are waived.

To register, call 518-475-0291 by Wednesday, January 5.

The outdoor portion of this program will be conducted on foot if there is insufficient snow.

Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas.
