Sweethearts Sunset Snowshoe Stroll

Hitchcock Nature Center, Pottawattamie County

Saturday, February 8, 2020

Join us for a sweet time at Hitchcock Nature Center as we get ready for Valentine's Day and find romance in Iowa's Loess Hills on Saturday, February 8th at 5:00 p.m. Participants will enjoy an introduction to snowshoeing then head outdoors to enjoy a snowy walk through the hills to watch the sunset. Then head back to the lodge to take in the starts & enjoy cocoa & s'mores by the fire.

Please note, snowshoeing requires 4 to 6 inches of snow, if there is not enough snow for snowshoe use we will enjoy a guided winter hike instead.

Cost for this event is $10.00 per person & includes admission to the park, programming, guided hike, snowshoe rental, & refreshments.
