Local Conservation Offers Snowshoeing


FREDERICKSBURG- Snowshoeing was once a necessity for transportation from point A to point B.  Today, however, it is a popular recreational activity for many people.

Matt Crayne with the Chickasaw County Conservation Board says they have held snowshoeing activities for many years.

Another hike is scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, December 28 at 1pm at Split Rock Park.  Crayne says the hike is great for anyone who has never tried it before.

The hike should take about one hour.  Crayne reminds people to dress in layers and wear snow boots.  In order to have the correct size snow shoes on hand, registration is required and can be completed by calling the Nature Center at 641-394-4714.
