Want to know how best to prepare yourself for outdoor activities in the winter cold? Want to try snowshoeing, and see if it is an activity you enjoy? Want an excuse to get outside during this long winter season? If so, this event is for you!

Parks Canada Learn-to Camp is putting on a small number of free Learn-to Snowshoe sessions this winter in Rouge National Urban Park at the Black Walnut Day Use Area. During these sessions we will be reviewing winter safety and winter preparedness, going over an introduction to snowshoeing, taking a short practice hike on one of RNUP’s many trails, and ending the day off with a campfire and some s’mores.
