Snowshoe Away from Those Winter Blues

Williamstown Snowshoe THTLTFeeling sick and tired of winter this time of year? Switch up your routine and head outside with Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust (THTLT) for a fun snowshoe hike on Saturday, February 11th from 10 am – 2 pm as we explore protected land in Williamstown, Oswego County.

Landowners, Cary Fassler and Deb Kahkejian will lead us through the moderate two mile hike of their trail system. You’ll experience forestland, rolling meadows, and wetlands that are home to a variety of wildlife on this 970-acre Land Trust protected property. If there is a dusting of fresh snow, we may be able to identify wildlife tracks. You will also have the opportunity to see forest stands that have been sustainably logged, and one that was severely overcut prior to being protected by the Land Trust. After the hike participants are invited back to the homestead to warm up with cookies and hot chocolate.

Plan on wearing sturdy boots, or bringing your snowshoes, and wearing plenty of warm layers. Children’s snowshoes are available upon advance request. Please pack a brown bag lunch and water. This family friendly hike is free and open to the community.

Plan to meet at the Fassler and Kahkejian residence at 398 State Route 69 in Williamstown, NY. Google maps link available here: https://goo.gl/maps/daHtqB9ghes   Look for a Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust sandwich board that will be posted at the entrance.

RSVPs are encouraged to keep track of how many people will be attending. Please RSVP by contacting Community Programs Manager Lianna Lee at 315.779.2239 or email tughilloutreach@nnymail.com.
