WINTER HIKING DAY-SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2020
FROM NOON TO 2:00 P.M.
Join us for a FREE fun-filled afternoon of guided winter hikes exploring the Hersey Lake Conservation Area. Walk through a northern deciduous forest and enjoy the beautiful winter views. Learn more about the Conservation Area and how plants and animals have adapted to survive the cold of a northern winter. Anyone interested in trying snowshoeing can do so by participating in the snowshoe portion of the event. You are encouraged to bring your own snowshoes (there will be a limited number to borrow on site thanks to the Misiway Milopemahtesewin Community Health Centre). The event will feature presentations from Timmins Porcupine Search and Rescue and the Timmins Fur Council. A warming tent will also be available, courtesy of Sewn Home for those needing to get out of the cold. Hot chocolate will be served by Wintergreen volunteers until 2:00 p.m.
