Families and friends are invited to get outdoors this winter and take part in free snowshoe walks and lantern-lit ski and snowshoe events at Ludington State Park on Saturdays during January and February.
Daylight snowshoe walks will be offered at 2 p.m. Jan. 16, 23 and 30, and Feb. 6 and 13. Moonlight snowshoe walks will be offered at 6 p.m. Jan. 16 and 30 and Feb. 13. Park staff members will guide participants through a 1.5-hour hike, while highlighting the park’s natural and historic resources and venturing through the snow-covered sand dunes.
“Snowshoeing is easy and can be done by anyone who is able to walk. One hour of moderate walking in snowshoes can burn up to 750 calories, and the sport is one of the safest winter activities,” said Alan Wernette, Ludington State Park interpreter.
