NLI will hold the Wander at the Wetland: Full Moon Snowshoe & Hike on Monday, Jan. 17, 2022 at Nygren Wetland Preserve, 3190 W. Rockton Rd., Rockton, Ill., 4:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

This FREE outdoor winter event is for all ages with or without snow. Experience the winter landscape of the prairie and wetland when you take a hike, snowshoe or ski the trail lit by hundreds of luminaries, sponsored by NorthPointe Health & Wellness Campus. You can head out on the trail on your own or follow a tour guide who will tell you about Natural Land Institute and the preserve. Listen to the stillness, or for the call of owls in the distance, watch the sunset in the horizon over the wetland, look for the full moon (if it’s not hidden by clouds) and enjoy exploring this natural area with family and friends.

Places to warm up include the winter themed greenhouse and two bonfires.

Rent snowshoes on site that night, sponsored by Rocktown Adventures, for a $10 donation per pair to NLI. Or, bring your own snowshoes or skis to this open house style event as you come and go at your own pace.

Registration is required online at: https://www.naturalland.org/.../wander-at-the-wetland.../ or by calling 815/964-6666 by noon on Jan. 17. Please tell us if you plan to rent snowshoes and how many child size snowshoes you will need. Adult sizes are expandable.
