Winter is a magical time of year here in northern Minnesota, and at Hartley Nature Center we make it a priority to enjoy it. Join us January 19th, 2019 from 4-7 pm for our 13th annual Candlelight Ski, Skate and Snowshoe event. This event celebrates the cold weather season and the silent woods, white snow, iced ponds, and groomed trails that come with it.

Cold weather fun seekers will have the chance to ski a luminary lined Hartley Park cross country ski trail (snow permitting), try out fat tire biking on a multi-use trail, join a naturalist guided snowshoe (or hike) tour, play on Hartley Pond, enjoy a light dinner from New Scenic Café, and sample local brews. You can finish off the night with dessert in the yurt. The whole family is welcome to join us or make it a date night!

This event is very popular and we have limited space. You are urged to pre-register if you want to attend. You can sign up by stopping in at the Nature Center or calling 218-724-6735 during business hours. The event is $5 for individual Hartley members, $10 for Hartley member households, $15 for non-member individuals, and $30 for non-member households.
