Snowflakes and Snowsnakes this Family Day Weekend at Crawford Lake

Posted by on

Celebrate the wonders of winter at Crawford Lake Conservation Area at Snowflakes and Snowsnakes this Family Day Weekend. Join staff from February 15 to 17, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for three special days of fun winter activities.

Get out and enjoy winter, hike, snowshoe, or ski the snow-covered trails, gather around a toasty fire to roast marshmallows, make bird feeders, go on a winter discovery hunt to win prizes and tour the longhouses.

Children will enjoy viewing the “Race of the Snowsnake” video, and they will have the opportunity to try their hand at this traditional First Nations sport. Visitors will also be able to discover snowshoeing up in the village as a staff member instructs on their history and use, or why not try snowshoeing at your own pace by renting a pair from the Visitor’s Centre.

Join one of our park staff to discover the bounty of the forest in winter. Take a guided hike to learn about survival in the winter and learn traditional fire making methods. Be sure to check out the gift shop and displays in the Visitor’s Centre

Although some activities are snow dependent, our winter Snowflakes and Snowsnakes celebration will take place regardless of the weather, so come join in the fun! Regular park admission applies for this event, and the festivities are free for children 4 and under.
