Snowshoe and Photo Hikes 12/28/2013 through 2/22/14

During winter months, visitors of all ages are invited to use the Refuge’s adult and child size snowshoes for free, and join a ranger for a fun snowshoe hike! A minimum of 4″ of snow on the trail is required to use snowshoes; if there is not enough snow, a hike on foot will still occur. Come dressed for the weather! Pre-register by contacting Megan Wandag at or 515-994-3400.
