Discover what lives in the natural world in winter. Join retired district forester Jim Kessler for a winter walk/snowshoe on the D&H tail in Union Dale. When the temperature drops and a coating of snow falls along the trail, it's the perfect time to put on that winter coat and enter the woods. In winter, many animals and non-migration birds are constantly searching for food, leaving clues to their activities in plain sight. This 2 hour hike will take us to places on and off the trail where we will discover lots of hidden secrets! The walk will focus on evergreen plants and animal track identification. This is a perfect outing for families with children who are interested in the outdoors. Tell your friends and family. We hope to see you there!
Let's get outside with Tiffany Debish, a local licensed Yoga Instructor. This two hour event will be part a mix of yoga and snowshoeing. Tiffany will begin the event with a short yoga instruction and then we will take to the trail to some of our favorite places where will we learn some history, see beautiful sights and take a few breaks to continue the yoga experience on the trail.
Reservations are needed for Yoga and snowshoe rentals (570-222-4429 firstname.lastname@example.org) No charge for snowshoe rental/ $5 donation for Yoga
During this hike we will discover secrets of the trail through Forest City. Children are welcome to join in History Bingo.
