BERWICK — South Nation Conservation (SNC) hosted a free Family Day Weekend snowshoe hike on Saturday, February 15 at its Warwick Forest Conservation Area in Berwick, North Stormont.
Over 40 local residents showed up to take advantage of free snowshoe rentals available from 10:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. for self-guided tours through the Forest’s 4 kilometres of groomed interpretive trail. SNC also provided free hot chocolate to participants, topping off a great day of family fun.
Warwick Forest is just one of SNC’s public Conservation Areas that remain open and maintained for winter use; a complete list can be found at: www.nation.on.ca/recreation.
SNC thanks its community partners at the Raisin Region Conservation Authority, the Friends of the Upper Canada Bird Sanctuary, and the Friends of the Summertown Trails for lending additional snowshoes for the event.
