Snowshoe Hike at Martin Van Buren Site

screen-shot-2017-02-23-at-2-08-28-pmThe Snowshoe Hike at the Martin Van Buren National Historic Site that was originally planned for January, was postponed to this Saturday (February 25). With the abnormally warm temperatures (66 in February) that we have been having, there may not be enough snow on the ground for the hike. Fortunately, the organizers already have a Plan B in place. If there is not enough snow on the ground, the program will be a letterbox challenge designed by last summer’s high school interns. Participants will be given instructions to find letters scattered throughout the park, and solve clues to locate the cache.

This activity involves walking over a mile on mostly flat grass. It is designed for ages 8 and up. Anyone 14 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
