Join a special adventure with the Wood River Chapter of the Idaho Native Plant Society (INPS) snowshoeing at Craters of the Moon National Park on Saturday, February 22. On this Ranger-led hike, we’ll look for animal tracks and learn about winter wildlife and plant adaptations in this important local ecosystem. Depending on conditions, snowshoeing can be a strenuous activity that is limited to adults and children over 10. The hike is about 1.5 miles in length.

There is is no charge for this event. Participants must preregister by calling Kristin at 208-721-2583. Meet at 7:15 a.m. at the Hailey Park and Ride Lot (corner River and Bullion Streets) to carpool. The group will depart at 7:25 a.m. for Craters of the Moon. For those wishing to meet at the Park, plan on arriving at 8:45 at the Visitors’ Center. 

Details: Snowshoes (and poles) are necessary.  Bring: lunch, water, binoculars, proper layers of footwear, outerwear, headgear, gloves, sunscreen. Dressing in layers is strongly recommended to handle a variety of weather conditions. Craters has snowshoes to lend, but not poles.
