Go Snowshoeing at a Wildlife Sanctuary

COVID-19 Update

Due to the pandemic, building closures and safety protocols may impact the availability of snowshoe rentals at some sanctuaries. Before you make any plans, please call the sanctuary to get the most up-to-date information.

Snowshoeing through the woods

Don't let a few inches of snow keep you from getting outdoors! There's no better way to explore the woods in winter than by snowshoe.

Just about all of our wildlife sanctuaries welcome snowshoeing from December-March as long as there is at least 6 inches of snow on the ground . You can go it alone, or join a guided snowshoe walk!

NOTE: Snowshoeing is not permitted at Endicott, Joppa Flats, Nahant Thicket, Sampsons Island, or Sesachacha Heathlands.

Snowshoe Rentals

Don't have your own snowshoes? Not a problem! A few of our wildlife sanctuaries offer equipment to rent or borrow.
