Looking for an outdoor adventure for the weekend? Explore the winter woods.

The O'Brien County Conservation Board is holding a Winter Hike on Saturday, Feb. 4, at 1 p.m. at Mill Creek Park. Everone will meet near the lodge and gather for a hike through the woods looking for animal signs.

This activity will take place regardless of ground cover. If there is snow on the ground, the group will be trekking on snowshoes. Snowshoes will be available to borrow free of charge. Call the Conservation Board Office at 712-295-7200 to reserve a pair. No matter what the weather ... make plans to join the fun.
