MILTON MILLS - On Jan. 18, Moose Mountains Regional Greenways and Branch Hill Farm/Carl Siemon Family Charitable Trust will jointly offer a kids' snowshoe walk and tracking activity. Snowshoe tracking is the first event of MMRG's 2020 'MOOSE-ies for Families' program.
At MMRG's previous family snowshoe event, kids went sledding, tried out walking in snowshoes, listened for bird songs at the edge of the woods and crowded around the leaders as they pointed out signs of wildlife along a snowy trail. Anticipating the upcoming event, MMRG's Educational Outreach Coordinator Kari Lygren says, "We'll look for signs of wildlife and talk about the animal stories that we can read in the snow. We always have a great time because kids are so curious and love to explore!"
The Snowshoe Tracking event will take place from 10 a.m.-noon at Branch Hill Farm in Milton Mills, led by MMRG staff and volunteers. Kids-sized snowshoes will be available as well as a few loaner snowshoes for adults. Children of all ages with their families are welcome but pre-registration is required. 'MOOSE-ies for Families' events are a membership benefit for MMRG member families, but non-members are encouraged to try out their first family activity for free. For more information, directions, and to pre-register, call MMRG's Educational Outreach Coordinator Kari Lygren at (603) 978-7125 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
