Join Up Yonda Farm Naturalists for a snowshoe hike at Amy’s Park! The hike will start from the main parking lot and follow the yellow trail north and loop the orange trail for views of the pond before returning to the parking lot via the yellow trail.
This 2.5 mile walk is considered easy/moderate and is mostly flat with a short, steep section. Your Naturalist guides will lead your adventure through the forest, observing the wonders of nature investigating different tree and foliage types, identifying freshly made animal tracks, and discussing the winter habits of the local fauna. Stops will include scenic locations along the pond to observe beaver lodges and wetlands. Space is limited and COVID-19 guidelines will be followed.
Reservations are required for this program and can be made on the Up Yonda Farm website upyondafarm.com. Snowshoe rentals are available on the reservation page, the hike is free, but donations are welcome!

The best way to aid Hemlock trees against HWA is Early Detection before infestations grow out of control.
