Snowshoe and Social, Fitzroy Provincial Park
Host: Karen Krueger
Meet: 227 Kedey Street, Fitzroy Harbour. Park on the street or at the end of the street. There is a dead end not far from the house.
Join us for a nature outing on snowshoes through the trails of Fitzroy Provincial Park where Karen will show us some of her favourite spots. We should see many winter birds and find tracks and other signs of animals going about their daily activities. We’ll walk along the banks of the Carp River to a spot where bald eagles are sometimes spotted and we will pass a beaver pond. After the outing, join us for a social gathering back at Karen’s home. Karen has friendly cats and a friendly dog. Please keep this in mind if you have allergies. Bring snowshoes. Hot drinks and snacks will be provided. This is very suitable for kids!

As of Friday afternoon the trails are hard packed, icy in places but navigable. Boots with ice grippers would probably work well too.
