Snowshoe Expedition: No Child Left Inside
February 24 @ 3:45 pm - 6:00 pm
Snowshoe Expedition: Students will learn how to travel via one of the oldest forms of human transportation: snowshoes! Students will learn how to properly outfit and use snowshoes, travel across snow-covered terrain, and build a quinzee. During this experience, we will discuss winter ecology, such as the adaptations life makes to survive life in the coniferous forests during harsh winters.
Duration: Activity will be about 2 hours in length.
Where to Meet: We will meet at the Canoe and Kayak Institute parking lot (also known as The Outpost) in Carlton, MN right off Highway 210, adjacent to the Thomson Dam.
Address: UMD Outpost 903 E. Highway 210 Carlton, MN 55718
