"The [Inuit] have 52 names for snow because it was important to them; there ought to be as many for love."
— Margaret Atwood
Explore Edmonton's beautiful river valley through the sport of snowshoeing, a traditional indigenous method of travel.
Led by an instructor from the City of Edmonton, we'll explore the area around John Jazen Nature Center and Fort Edmonton Park during which the instructor will cover:
1. How to use walk, run, turn, and jump in snowshoes
2. Identify animals tracks in the river valley
3. Cover the fauna that survives through winter
This will be followed by a bonfire, hot chocolate, and marshmallows -- to socialize and mingle.
Cost is $10 per snowshoeing participant. Your sport is reserved
The s'mores and bonfire are open to all.
If the weather is not conducive to snowshoeing, the instructor will make the call to cancel and an alternative date will be arranged.
