Ahhh late January in Minnesota! It can be lots of things… probably cold, probably snowy, but definitely beautiful.
Join us at Sugarloaf Cove for a winter exploration under the light of the moon. We will have a campfire, toast some marshmallows, sip hot beverages and experience firsthand the beauty of the outdoors. A torchlit hike to the shore on the Scientific and Natural Area will be part of the event, so come prepared for a short expedition.
A clear night will provide great views of the moon and winter stars, but clear night or otherwise there is always a lot happening under the ice and snow even when the living world seems to be slumbering. Let’s investigate and see what’s going on! Dress for being outside with winter boots and winter layers. There is also an indoor Nature Center to retreat to if weather is overly challenging outside.
This program is in partnership with the MN DNR – Scientific and Natural Areas program.
