One Last Winter Skill – Snowshoeing!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As we enter the final week of the semester, students and staff are determined to fit as much winter fun as possible into the time we have left. So despite warming temperatures that brought rain and turned some of our lovely snow into slush, students in Field Instruction broke out their snowshoes on Monday and Tuesday. Some had done this before and some hadn’t, but field instructor Chris Homeister explained the basics and took them out into a bog, where they could try out the school’s snowshoes on flat, open ground. Our hope is that the skills students have been practicing during their last weeks here at Conserve School will help them get out and enjoy winter even after they’ve left to return home – we’re certainly going to miss them!
