The Candlelight Snowshoe will be held on Saturday, January 18 from 5 to 7PM. The event is free and perfect for the whole family to enjoy, even if you’ve never been snowshoeing before.
 
During the Candlelight Snowshoe Event, Aldo Leopold Nature Center, 300 Femrite Drive, Monona, WI will be open as a warming shelter and has bathrooms.  A camp fire will be available for participants to warm up outside. The trail winds through the Edna Taylor Conservation Park, Monona’s Woodland Park, and the Aldo Leopold Nature Center with trail entrances at each location.
