Learn to Make Snowshoes at Ludington State Park

Mon, Dec  19, 2005 - By Mary Dettloff, DNR


Ludington State Park is hosting a series of snowshoe-making workshops this winter at the park's warming shelter. The workshops will be held Dec. 28, Jan. 8 and Jan. 22, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Jan. 30 and Jan. 31, from 6 to 9 p.m.

"Snowshoeing is growing in popularity because it is very easy to learn," said Alan Wernette, park interpreter. "It is a fun and healthy way to enjoy winter and is something the entire family can enjoy doing together."

Participants will make a pair of traditional white ash snowshoes that will last for generations. The $110 registration fee includes all materials and equipment needed to make one pair of snowshoes. Class sizes are limited and reservations are needed. To make a reservation, please call Ludington State Park at (231) 843-9261. A state park motor vehicle permit is required for entry and can be purchased at the park office.

The DNR is committed to the conservation, protection, management, use and enjoyment of the state's natural resources for current and future generations.
