Ski and Snowshoe Outing Set for Feb. 26
NEWPORT – The Memphremagog Watershed Association (MWA) will host a ski and snowshoe outing at the Bluffside farm in Newport, on Sunday, Feb. 26, from 10 a.m. to noon. The outing event will meander through forestland and agricultural lands along the shores of Lake Memphremagog. Stops will be made during the outing to discuss such things as wildlife habitat the fields/agriculture use and managed forests, invasive species control and a wetland restoration project on the Bluffside Farm. Memphremagog Trails (MST) groom ski trails suitable for all ages and abilities to allow for an outing through the farm and across Scott’s Cove bridge to Prouty beach. Participants should bring skis and/or snowshoes and dress for a winter day on the trails. If the snow is not cooperating, the group will walk.
Those interested should meet at the Sugarhouse parking lot at Bluffside Farm, 171 Scott Farm Road, at 10 a.m., for an hour and a half moderate-paced ski/snowshoe/walk and discussion. Refreshments will be provided on the return.
This is a free event sponsored by Memphremagog Watershed Association, Vermont Land Trust, Vermont Woodlands Association, Associate sponsors: Memphremagog Trails, City of Newport.
