Snowshoeing for Beginners (Central) on Jan. 28th from 1pm-3pm at Nolde Forest Environmental Education Center. No reason to be suffering from cabin fever, as winter is a great time to explore the forests. After a brief introduction by County and State Parks Staff, you will put your newly learned skills to use by exploring some of the trails in Nolde by snowshoe. You can bring your own pair of snowshoes or borrow a pair from Nolde. And if there is no snow, they will take a short hike. Please remember to dress for the weather. Call 610-37-2944 ext. 2611 to register by 1/24/18.
