Allamakee County Conservation to host Full Moon Snowshoe event January 5 south of Lansing

Join the Allamakee County Conservation Board (ACCB) for a Full Moon Snowshoe Hike Thursday, January 5 at 6:30 p.m. The hike will take place on County Road 527, south of the Lansing power plant. Participants should park at the rural recycling drop-off location on Powerplant Drive approximately 1.5 miles south of the Driftless Area Education and Visitors Center.

The Full Moon Snowshoe will be a guided trail hike taking place after dark to enable the participants to see the stars and full moon like they have never seen before.  The event requires preregistration for those wishing to use snowshoes provided by the ACCB and is open to all ages. However, anyone under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

It is asked that no pets be brought to the event. In the case of inclement weather or poor snow conditions, the Full Moon Snowshoe may be postponed or canceled and will be announced via the ACCB’s Facebook page.

Appropriate-sized snowshoes and trekking poles will be provided to individuals who do not have their own equipment, with pre-registration. Participants should dress for the weather with appropriate layers including outerwear, winter hats, gloves and waterproof boots. A headlamp or small flashlight is also recommended, but not required.

A full schedule of upcoming events hosted by the Allamakee County Conservation Board is available by following the ACCB on Facebook. To register or to receive more information on this event or any event call the ACCB at 563-538-0403.
