If you haven't guessed by now, we will be on the prowl for Owls. Learn their calls, what they like to eat, how to tell if an Owl is roosting in a particular spot and dispel some of the myths you may have heard.
For example, did you know Owls cannot actually rotate their head 360º?
Seize this opportunity to partake in a tradition that goes back centuries, snowshoeing.
Learn about how snowshoes were made, who used them, the different types of snowshoes and much more. From the days of the rawhide & wood variety to modern day plastic & aluminum models.
