Have you tried snowshoeing? The Albany Pine Bush Preserve is a great place to get started with this fun sport. We’ll explore the frozen landscape of the pine barrens and learn the basics of snowshoeing. We will hike 0.9 miles on snowshoes. Snowshoes will be provided to program participants. If there is not enough snow on the ground, we will hike without snowshoes. this program will meet inside the Discovery Center.
