9am-Noon
$10 per Scout

For centuries, people in northern countries faced the problem of getting about in deep snow.  Humans needed some means of staying on top of the snow and taking advantage of its slippery qualities, rather than floundering along with maximum exertion and minimum progress.  The invention of the ski and snowshoe filled a great need.

Begin earning your Snow Sports Merit Badge as Ney Nature Center offers an exclusive program for Scouts.  You’ll learn about cross country skiing and snowshoeing and have the opportunity to try them out on trails.

Pre-requisite for the course is requirement #5.

You must register by Thursday, February 18, 2021.  Click Here to register
