ACCB to host Full Moon Snowshoe Hike January 26

Join the Allamakee County Conservation Board (ACCB) for a Full Moon Snowshoe Hike Friday, January 26 at 6 p.m. The hike will take place in the Fish Farm Mounds State Preserve and will be approximately three miles in length. Participants should meet at the Fish Farm Mounds parking area approximately three miles south of New Albin on the Great River Road.

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. 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 preregistration. 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 in order to participate.
