Come on your own or bring family and friends to experience the winter landscape of the prairie and wetland when you take a hike, snowshoe or ski the trail lit by luminaries. Two bonfires will warm you up with one about midway along the trail by the wetland.

Rocktown Adventures will provide snowshoes (weather dependent) for a donation of $10 per pair to NLI the night of the event, or bring your own snowshoes or skis to this open house style event as you come and go at your own pace.

Check in at the red barn upon arrival where you will also find hot cocoa, cookies, and snacks. Dress for the weather in layers and boots (waterproof recommended).

Luminaries sponsored by NorthPointe Health & Wellness Campus. Snowshoes sponsored by Rocktown Adventures.
