Winter Family Hike at Maasto-Hiito

Take a snowshoe hike to investigate who lives in the world beneath the snow and what they are doing on Saturday, Feb. 28 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Those attending will meet at the Maasto-Hiito Chalet. The program will be led by Denise Landsberg, an environmental educator, who will engage the group in creative outdoor play and nature exploration.

Families are encouraged to bring snowshoes, but there will be 20 pairs available for those who need them.

The program is free. Funding is provided by the Michigan Association of Environmental Professionals. The program is coordinated by the Western UP Center for Science, Math and Environmental Education.
