MUSKEGON, Mich.— The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is offering some free programs to help you make the best of the snow burying our area.
The DNR’s “Just Add Snow” programs include snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, ice fishing, dog sledding and other winter-themed activities at nine DNR visitor centers throughout February. Each program is free of charge, but a Recreation Passport is needed for vehicles to enter state parks.
“We’ve had a good snowfall this year and conditions are perfect for getting outdoors and enjoying the beauty of winter,” said Kevin Frailey, who oversees programs at the DNR visitor centers. “It doesn’t cost much. Most programs are free, the instruction is free and, in most cases, loaner equipment is available for those who don’t have their own.
