So many species to observe when the snow is around - owls, birds, fox, etc. and they are all hungry!! Be sure to fill your feeders for your feathered friends! And don't forget to check for birding programs on the calendar.

We have beautiful conditions for x-c in some parts of the state! Peace and tranquility abound in parks and forests. Trip leaders take the worry out of where to go. In addition to the obvious fitness benefits, cross-country skiing is an excellent way to observe nature and makes a great family activity.
