Merrimac Preserve Snowshoe
Join us for a morning snowshoe (or hike if snowshoeing isn't your thing) at Merrimac Preserve led by Linda Lynch, Riverland Conservancy Executive Director and naturalist.
Saturday, January 28, 2017
Morning: 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Where: The Red Barn at S6770A State Road 113 Merrimac, WI (Map)
Who: FREE and open to supporters and others
What: Two hour snowshoe or hike along 1.5 miles of walking trails.
What to Bring: Please bring appropriate clothing, water and snowshoes if there is deep snow.
The preserve, which is made up of forest, prairie, savanna, wetlands and streams provides an important wildlife corridor between the Baraboo Bluffs and the Wisconsin River to the south. On the southern border of the preserve, Gallus Slough which is a shallow marsh connecting to Lake Wisconsin hosts an amazing diversity of waterfowl and other wildlife. Join us on this 1.5 mile snowshoe through the beautiful Merrimac Preserve led by Linda Lynch. Meet at the Manley Creek Barn at S6770A State Road 113 at 9:30 am., with a warm beverage and snacks to be enjoyed at the end. If there is little or no snow cover, the event will be a hike instead of a snowshoe. Don't miss this opportunity to hike a new place meet other Natural Heritage Land Trust supporters who share your commitment to conservation where you live. Dogs are welcome on this field trip.
