Winter’s Wonders Snowshoe Hike

Sat., Feb. 22 - 10:00 a.m. - Meet at North Overlook Picnic Area

Getting cabin fever yet? Strap on a pair of snowshoes and get outside! Join a quest for winter wildlife and the signs they leave behind. Search for animal tracks, birds foraging for food, mouse tunnels, and other wildlife activity. After the walk, meet back at the picnic shelter for cocoa by the fireplace! Snowshoes will be available for checkout free of charge - wear snow boots for the best fit. The walk will last about an hour. If there is not enough snow for snowshoeing, a “snowshoeless” winter hike will be scheduled.

Programs are free of charge and no reservations are needed. Outdoor programs may be cancelled if there’s inclement weather. For more information, call the Corps of Engineers office at 641-828-7522 or 641-628-8690 or via email at lakeredrock@usace.army.mil.
