Snowshoe the high elevation spruce-fir forests of Windsor and learn about this unique ecosystem, where plant species such as balsam fir and red spruce are the dominant trees. We hope to find tracks of snowshoe hare, ruffed grouse, and other fascinating wildlife. Our hike will be two miles round trip over moderately challenging terrain. In the event of little or no snow, this will be a hike. (This program is being offered on two different dates.)
This moderate trek is approximately 2 miles round-trip. Participants should wear warm, layered clothing and sturdy, waterproof boots and pants. Snowshoe rentals available at Tamarack Hollow for $5 per pair - email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve. *In the event of "little to no snow" this will be a winter ecology, tree and plant hike. Please bring water and a snack.
