Free and Family Friendly event coming to the Newaygo County Welcome Center on
February, a form
Pale-vestured, wildly fair,--
One of the North Wind's daughters,
With icicles in her hair.
~Edgar Fawcett, "The Masque of Months,"
Ah yes, February.
I know, I know, we’re still a bit entrenched in the opening month of the year with a good bit of snow and bitter cold making the month’s exit a most welcome one. After all for one who arrived and settled in with a fairly peaceful demeanor the never too brief visitor is departing with a bang sending all the wind and snow and cold saved up from over 3 weeks of relative calm lashing out in a frightful farewell.
But February awaits. A 4 week sojourn through the very heart of our beloved bipeninsular winter.
And what better time to celebrate this wondrous wintry weather?
The Newaygo County Conservation Collaborative is a very cool group of people doing some amazing things to help folks appreciate the natural wonders we Michiganders are blessed with.
Last summer they put on a snorkeling/scuba event that drew rave reviews and now they have turned their attention to what winter fun can be had in our fair climes.
I’m talking sledding, ice fishing, snowshoeing, hiking, skating, (ice, not roller of course) and more.
You can build a bird or bat house to bring home, there’s the ever popular chili cook off (are you a bean or no-bean chili person?) and you can learn about night photography, native gardening and take part in a boatload of activities
Well, actually the best part is all the things you get to do, of course, but having this family friendly fun for free is fantastic.
We’ll keep you posted with more details as time draws near and for sure we’ll be there to sample a bit of chili.
Particularly the no bean variety.
