Forest Service to host snowshoe walk as part of Plumas Winter Fest

Feather Publishing
2/17/2011

The Plumas National Forest invites everyone to come out and enjoy the beautiful winter scenery. What better way to do so than to engage in the unique and exhilarating recreational experience that snowshoeing offers?

The Beckwourth Ranger District will sponsor a free educational snowshoe walk, February 19, 2011 at the Plumas Winter Festival in Portola, CA.

There will be two walks providing a great opportunity for participants of ages 8 (children must be accompany with a guardian) and above to try a new activity or revisit a familiar one. They also offer the perfect occasion to learn more about the Forest and its wildlife.

Snowshoes are provided free of charge. Participants should wear snow boots, layers of warm clothing (including waterproof pants if it is stormy), a hat, and gloves. They should also bring sunscreen, sunglasses, water, and a snack.

For further questions or special needs please call the Beckwourth Ranger District at (530) 836-2575.
