Allamakee County Conservation to host Fullmoon Snowshoe January 28

Join the Allamakee County Conservation Board (ACCB) for a Fullmoon Snowshoe Hike January 28 at 7 p.m.  The hike will take place on County Road 527, a level B dead end road that travels along the Mississippi River for approximately two miles. Participants should meet at the Allamakee County rural recycling drop-off location near the Alliant Lansing power plant.

The Fullmoon Snowshoe will be a guided trail hike taking place after dark to enable the participants to see the stars and full moon like they have never seen before. The event requires preregistration for those wishing to use snowshoes provided by the ACCB and is open to all ages. However, anyone under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. In the case of inclement weather or poor snow conditions, the Fullmoon Snowshoe may be postponed or canceled and will be announced on ACCB’s Facebook page.

Appropriate-sized snowshoes and trekking poles will be provided to individuals who do not have their own equipment with preregistration. Participants should dress for the weather with appropriate layers including outerwear, winter hats, gloves and waterproof boots. A headlamp or small flashlight is also recommended, but not required.

A full schedule of upcoming events hosted by the ACCB is available by following the ACCB on Facebook. To register or to receive more information on this event or any event, call the ACCB at 563-538-0403.
