We'll include some "Snowshoeing 101" for those new to the activity as well as some tips on locations in the Mount Hood region that would be applicable to all ability levels. The presentation will include:

    Reference map
    What to bring
    How to be safe when snowshoeing
    Gear (snowshoes and clothing)

We will be raffling off a copy of Oregon's Ancient Forests: A Hiking Guide, a solar USB charger, and a "Wild: The Oregon Way" t-shirt! Tickets are $5 and are an optional purchase below. Raffle tickets not only help us continue these Wednesday presentations but also support our work safeguarding Oregon's wildlands, wildlife, and waters.

Awesome! Snowshoeing is such an accessible winter pursuit.
Believe it or not, I barely ever ride a mountain bike.
