Families enjoyed good weather with snowshoeing

Mississippi Valley Conservancy gave guided hikes through River Conservancy

Kids and adults alike were out enjoying the warm weather Saturday.

The Mississippi Valley Conservancy hosted another snowshoeing event this winter, getting people of all ages outside and enjoying nature. Participants got a guided tour of the La Crosse River Conservancy near Stony Creek Inn.

Officials say it’s a great way to show off the beauty of our area.

“It’s really fun to help people learn about the different properties that MVC has permanently protected, and that’s open to the public for outdoor recreations such as snowshoeing,” said Mississippi Valley Conservancy Outreach Coordinator.

Temperatures were in the 40’s, making for a nice day to be outside.
