On March 24th, CPAWS Ottawa Valley is having it’s annual Moonlight Snowshoe Challenge in Gatineau Park (at Meech Creek Valley).
Participants are asked to raise at least $100 through sponsorship for the event, and all of the money raised will go towards CPAWS’ efforts to protect forests and wildlife in Canada.
The snowshoeing/hike is about 6km and will take place around 6:30-10:30 on the evening of March 24th. If there is not very much snow or if the snow is packed for the event, snowshoes wont be required so it will just be a hike.
We will be stopping at a camp fire in the forest for hot chocolate and a desert, which will be provided by CPAWS.
This is a great opportunity to get out into the beautiful forest at night to see it from a different prospective, and is a good opportunity to learn about what CPAWS does in the community/Canada to protect parks and wilderness.
