“Pop-up” Snowshoe Tours at Great Bay NWR (TBD)
January 20 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
Want to check out behind the scenes on a perfect snow day at Great Bay National Wildlife Refuge in January? Register your contact info to get the scoop on when we’ll hold our January pop-up snowshoeing tours! Who knows when it will snow? We’ll be hoping for great conditions! Receive an email invite with the details of the date and time we’ll meet. Spots will be filled on a first to respond basis. Once you register your contact info with Nature Groupie, use the hashtag #gbnwrsnowday & #naturegroupie to spread the word!
Participants will have an opportunity to snowshoe areas of the refuge that are not normally open to the public while looking for signs of wildlife in a winter landscape. The refuge provides a wonderful clean slate of untouched snow, which is the most ideal condition when looking for animal tracks! Learn about what animals do in the winter season for food and shelter, and how to identify tracks, scat, and signs of their passage.
This program is suitable for adults. Please come dressed for snowshoeing in winter conditions. Consider bringing along binoculars or camera. Snowshoes are NOT provided, but are required. Participants will meet the volunteer guide in the Great Bay NWR parking lot in Newington, NH. Please note: The date listed on Nature Groupie’s website is NOT the date of the pop-up event. Dates and times will be determined based on weather conditions and availability of volunteer leaders. If you have previously registered for pop-up invitations, please do not register again.
