Snowshoe Building Course

Wickiup Hill Learning Center, Linn County

Monday, December 13, 2021

Let’s Build Snowshoes!   Linn County Conservation will offer the opportunity for you to build a pair of traditional snowshoes led by Naturalist Chuck Ungs.  You can use these sets for hiking, decorations, or unique gifts.   Participants must register on-line and pay by November 24 at 4 p.m. to order the kits.

The evening weaving sessions are held from 6 – 9 p.m. on December 13, 16, and 20 at the Wickiup Hill Learning Center. Additional evenings will be needed to varnish the shoes at the Linn County Conservation Department services shop at 3173 Highway 13, Marion (corner of Highway 13 and County Home Road) in the week or so following snowshoe construction and between the Holidays.  A minimum of three to four of these evenings will be required to varnish the shoes properly. Kit building typically requires the manual dexterity of someone high school age or older.   Cost:  $225 which includes the snowshoe kit, a binding set and varnish for each participant. Register online at Events at Linncountyparks.com.  For more details call Chuck at 319-892-6485.
