Snowshoe-lacing workshop at Buffalo River State Park

Outdoor enthusiasts can ready for the snow by lacing up a their own pair of Ojibwe-style wooden snowshoes at a two-day workshop from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 16, and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 17. Instructors will guide participants step-by-step through the process, or they can work at their own pace.

The workshop will take place at the Moorhead State University Regional Science Center, which is adjacent to Buffalo River State Park. To get to the Regional Science Center, take the exit for the park off U.S. Highway 10 (14 miles east of Moorhead) and follow the signs. A map is also available online.  For more information, call the park office at 218-498-2124 or the Center at 218-477-2904.
