Intro to Ice Fishing
Intro to Ice Fishing

Tettegouche State Park Visitor’s Center | Silver Bay MN

Have you ever wanted to try ice fishing but didn’t know where to start? Tettegouche State Park is hosting a free ice fishing experience on Lax Lake. We’ll be targeting pan fish and northern pike. Tettegouche will provide the equipment, bait, and hot beverages and you just show up!

Dress for the conditions and bring water and snacks. Plan to park at the boat landing and walk out to our fishing site. Conditions MAY allow for driving on the ice, but wild ice is unpredictable so we encourage you to walk the short distance, instead.

Experienced ice angler volunteers are encouraged to contact the naturalist. We’d love your help!

Exploring Snowshoeing

Gooseberry Falls State Park | Two Harbors

Discover the quiet enjoyment of this low-impact sport. Begin in the Visitor Center Theater for a brief history and basic instructions. Then join the naturalist for a gentle hike to the CCC Camp looking for signs of wildlife and winter wonders.

Bring your own snowshoes or borrow a pair from the park. There are a limited number of adult and children? snowshoes, send us an email or stop in at the Visitor Center to reserve your snowshoes. Call Gooseberry Falls 218 595-7108.

We do need 6 inches of snow on the ground to snowshoe, if there is a lack of snow, a winter walk will occur.

Explore the Winter Wonderland

Sugarloaf Cove Nature Center | Schroeder Minnesota

Ahhh, January in Minnesota! It can be lots of things… probably cold, probably snowy, but definitely beautiful. Join us for a winter exploration under the light of the moon. We will have a campfire, toast some marshmallows, enjoy hot beverages and see what’s happening first hand. A torchlight hike to the shore will be part of the event, so come prepared for a short expedition. A clear night might provide great views of the moon and winter stars, but clear or otherwise there is definitely a lot happening even when the living world seems to be slumbering under the ice and snow. Let’s investigate and see what’s going on!

Dress for being outside with winter boots, and winter layers, but know there is also an indoor Nature Center to retreat to if weather is overly challenging outside.

$5 per person; $15 per family; Members free.
