Beaver Lake Nature Center: Cross country ski basics

At 7 p.m. Friday Feb. 11, join a Beaver Lake Nature Center naturalist for a guided moonlit snowshoe hike. A winter moon will light the way as the group explores the nature center's woodlands and frozen marshes on snowshoes. This is a special opportunity to explore Beaver Lake's night world with an experienced guide. Registration is required beginning at 8 a.m. the day of the hike and space is limited. This program is $2 per person and will be offered only when snow conditions are acceptable. Please call the Nature Center at 638-2519 that day to register and check conditions. Snowshoes may be rented from Beaver Lake for $3.
