SNOWSHOE THE WINTER LANDSCAPE

Monday, January 19, 2009
1 - 4 pm (Add a lunch bunch option for $5 extra!)


Join us for a “Snowshoeing 101” course at ALNC! Learn the Native American history of snowshoeing and try out snowshoes for yourself in this winter exploration. We’ll practice some snowshoe “calisthenics,” have a snowshoe race and take a hike by snowshoe to observe winter animal activity. If no snow is present, we’ll hike to observe animal signs on foot. This program is presented in partnership with REI; all snowshoes will be provided. Appropriate for children ages 5 and older. Limit: 20 participants. YOU MUST SPECIFY YOUR CHILD’S WEIGHT WHEN REGISTERING.

ALNC Members: $10/participant; Non-Members: $12/participant

TRACKING ON SNOWSHOES

Friday, January 23, 2009
1 - 4 pm (Add a lunch bunch option for $5 extra!)


Some animals in nature have “built-in” snowshoes, but humans have had to invent their own! You’ll learn how to put on and take off snowshoes, fall down, get up, turn around and all around have fun! We’ll move like bobcats on the trails through the prairie, forest and savanna in search of animal signs, learn how animals are adapted to walk through snow and the different tracks they leave behind. If no snow is present, we will hike to observe animal signs on foot. This program is presented in partnership with REI; all snowshoes will be provided. Limit: 20 participants. YOU MUST SPECIFY YOUR CHILD’S WEIGHT WHEN REGISTERING.

ALNC Members: $10/participant; Non-Members: $12/participant
Registration Deadline: Wednesday, January 21, 2009
