Join snowshoe enthusiasts to explore the trails at Wisconsin’s only urban state forest on Saturday, February 1st at Havenwoods Environmental Center. This state park, located at 6141 N. Hopkins St. in Milwaukee, requires no sticker. There are more than 6 miles of trails on 237 acres of woods, grasslands, and wetlands in the city of Milwaukee. For a map, check out the dnr.wi.gov website.
Meet at the Nature Center at 10 a.m. to snowshoe or hike the trails if snow conditions are poor. Afterwards, we can go for lunch if there is interest.
