About this Event
The snowshoe will take us into the Minesing Wetlands to areas that are not easily accessible without the snow and ice cover. Expect to be dazzled by the landscape and possibly encounter some hardy wildlife that endure Canada’s winter. On past snowshoe adventures we have encountered Snowy Owls, Bald Eagles and lots of wildlife tracks! The adventure will start at 9:00 am and last approximately 3 hours, including periodic breaks.
The hike location will be dependent on weather conditions and will be provided to registered participants approximately a week before the event date. Most locations are approximately a 20 minute drive west of Barrie.
Included in your admission fee of $10.00, FOMW will provide ecological interpretation of the Minesing Wetlands along the way. Bring your own snowshoes. We do have 2 pairs available to borrow for an additional $10.00.
