Snowshoeing at the Boston Nature Center

Kids snowshoeing at BNC

We have the cure for cabin fever—snowshoeing at BNC! Bring your own snowshoes, or rent a pair from us. Snowshoeing is a great winter activity that provides good exercise and a chance to explore the great outdoors during a beautiful season.

→ Snowshoes can be used anytime there is AT LEAST 6" of snow on the ground. 

We make it easy and inexpensive, and we rent snowshoes in child and adult sizes!
