Join Northwoods Land Trust (NWLT) staff and a Minocqua Winter Park representative from 1 to 4 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 24, at the Minocqua Winter Park Ski Chalet for a discussion of the role the Northwoods Land Trust played in the 3,195-acre conservation easement at Minocqua Winter Park followed by skiing or snowshoeing some of the trails.
“Exploring the trails via ski or snowshoe is a great way to observe some of the beautiful habitats in the Northwoods,” NWLT outreach coordinator Troy Walters said.
Participants will be snowshoeing 1.5 miles over uneven terrain or skiing at least 3.5 miles to explore the diverse trails in this large expanse of land. Snowshoe and ski rental are available at the Minocqua Winter Park Ski Shop. See http://minocquawinterpark.org/ for rates.
This event is open to the public, but participants will need to purchase a day pass at MWP to ski ($15) or snowshoe ($8). Register in advance by calling the NWLT office at 715-479-2490 or email [email protected]
