Are you ready for a fun winter adventure? Snowshoeing is a great activity for families of all ages. Explore the refuge this winter by snowshoeing and search for winter wildlife and tracks! Warm up with a cup of coffee or hot cocoa, while browsing the exhibits after the 1 mile hike. A limited number of snowshoes in adult and children’s sizes are available to borrow.
