FINCH — Help South Nation Conservation kick off a year of 70th anniversary celebrations by stepping into some snowshoes. SNC invites the public to Warwick Forest Conservation Area on Sat., Jan. 28, for a snowshoe hike to mark the start of its milestone year.

The snowshoe hike is the first of many events planned in 2017 to celebrate SNC’s 70th.

“We are extremely proud of our 70 years of environmental conservation, management and protection,” said Lisa Van De Ligt, SNC Communications Specialist. “We have many celebratory events planned for the community this year; an open house, a bus tour, a fishing derby, and much more.”  Event details will be posted on SNC’s website throughout the year.

Starting at 11 a.m. on Jan. 28, SNC staff will be at the Warwick Forest Conservation Area trailhead. The organization will have snowshoes on hand for participants to borrow free of charge for their hike if they don’t already own a pair.  Participants are welcome to bring their own cross-country skis, which are also a great way to explore the forest.  Warm up after the journey with free hot chocolate. The event will wrap-up at 3 p.m.

Warwick Forest Conservation Area is located on Berwick Road (County Road 9), approximately six km east of Berwick,  North Stormont.

Participants can use SNC’s Warwick Forest Interpretive Brochure for their self-guided hike.  The four km of interpretive trails take visitors through various wildlife habitats, and it’s a great opportunity to explore the beauty of winter. Geocaching enthusiasts will also enjoy the various caches hidden throughout the property.

In addition to the Warwick Interpretive Trail, SNC offers year-round recreation at many other properties in the area.
