Winter Walks This Saturday

There’s nothing like a crisp winter’s day and this Saturday, February 3rd you’ll have two opportunities to get outside and get active with your family!

First at Devil’s Lake State Park from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm you can join DNR Naturalist, Sue Johansen for a fun family-friendly hike. You’ll discover all sorts of cool, fascinating things that are happening outside in winter! Restore your warmth and energy at the end back at the campfire with a hearty cinnamon-spiced, fire baked apple treat!
