Published: Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014 11:12 a.m. CDT • Updated: Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014 8:17 p.m. CDT

The public is invited to cross-country ski and snowshoe from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Jacob Krumm Nature Preserve in eastern Jasper County.

The clinic, led by Jasper County Conservation staff, will be for both beginners who wish to learn how to ski or snowshoe and the more advanced who wish to sharpen their skills on the trails.  

A limited number of snowshoes, skis and boots will be available for a $10 equipment fee, or participants can bring their own equipment. The clinic will only be held if there is snow cover on the ground.

The preserve can be reached by driving north off of exit 179 from Interstate 80. The preserve entrance is reached by going another mile east on the gravel road Jacob Avenue. A warming shelter is available at the preserve.
