Snowshoe the Minesing Wetlands

Join us on March 10 as we lead a snowshoe trip into the Minesing Wetlands.

The snowshoe will take us to one of Ontario’s oldest Great Blue Heron nesting sites (Heronry) if the conditions are right with enough snow and ice. Regardless of where we end up, along the way expect to be dazzled by the landscape and possibly encounter some hardy wildlife that endure Canada’s winter. On past snowshoe adventures we have encountered Snowy Owls and Bald Eagles! FOMW will provide ecological interpretation of the Minesing Wetlands.

Cost is $10 per person. Please bring cash on the day. Departure time is at 1:00 pm.

The adventure will require approximately 3 hours of snowshoeing, which includes periodic breaks. Bring your own snacks, water and warm drinks, and dress appropriately for winter weather! Extra socks and extra clothing, just in case.

Don’t have a pair of snowshoes? Our group recently purchased 2 pairs (one pair will fit a medium to small stature female and one pair will fit a medium to small stature male) to rent out during the hike for a fee of $10 per pair (in addition to the hike fee of $10). This is a perfect opportunity for first timers! They will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
