WRN Kids – Snowshoeing

On Saturday February 29th we went snowshoeing at Laurel Creek Nature Centre in Waterloo. We learned that snowshoes were first used by Indigenous people. The first snowshoes were made out of wood and parts sourced from animals. Snowshoes are useful to help you walk on snow, without them on you would sink into the snow.

There was lots of snow on the ground that day. The weather was good, it was cold but the sun was out. We went snowshoeing in the forest. The forest was beautiful to walk through. I was really happy to go snowshoeing. We played a tag game with our snowshoes on. It was fun

We also got to feed the chickadees and have them land on us.
