CPAWS Moonlight Snowshoe Challenge

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.
