Candlelight Hike and Snowshoeing
Hiking and snowshoeing by candlelight, a roaring bonfire, and complimentary warm refreshments await couples, singles and families at the Friends of Horicon Marsh International Education Center's event. The Education Center will also be open for people to warm up, view the 20 minute "Horicon Marsh Story", visit the gift shop or have the kids do a fun craft to bring home! Astronomers will be on site to view the night sky or to talk about the stars if it is cloudy. Warm beverages and light snacks will be available inside the center. The Friends' volunteers and DNR staff will line the trails with candle-powdered luminaries to welcome and guide hikers and snowshoers. Volunteers will also be on hand for assistance and information. The lighted trail starts at Bachhuber Impoundment trailhead. Hiking and snowshoeing are free to the public and snowshoes will be available on a first come first serve basis at no charge.
