Mercer Pines Snowshoe and Lunch with John Bates & Mary Burns
January 27 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm$40 – $45
Join John and Mary for this unique snowshoe experience! We’ll hike out and back for a total of about 1 mile. The trail is flat and goes through a hemlock stand and an alder wetland to get to this island of unmarked old-growth pines. We’ll take our time and stop frequently to discuss the unique ecology of old-growth hemlock-hardwoods and white pine. You should have some snowshoeing stamina – two hours outside in the winter can be tiring! After the hike, we’ll eat lunch together – two kinds of vegetarian soups with breads and cheese, plus hot cider and tea.
Instructions on hike logistics will be sent to registrants (we will be meeting to carpool at 9:40 a.m.).
Friday 10:00 am – 12:00 pm with lunch at the North Lakeland Discovery Center from 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm.
Pre-registration is required by 1/25.
Cost: $40/Member and $45/Non-Member
