Embark on a winter adventure! Join BLM interpretive rangers on a snowshoe hike through the enchanting old-growth conifer forest at Hyatt Lake Recreation Area. Suitable for ages 12 and up, these Saturday excursions offer a unique opportunity to explore the biodiversity of a stunning winter landscape.

Rangers will interpret winter adaptations of plants and animals, animal tracks and signs, the basics of snow science, and the environment that hides beneath the snow. Lace up your boots and join us for an unforgettable journey into nature! Snowshoes and poles are provided free-of-cost by the BLM.

We will meet at 9 a.m. at the Rite Aid in Ashland and make our way into the Monument from there. Carpooling is optional. For any questions, please email jduwe@blm.gov.

This program is a collaboration between the Medford District Bureau of Land Management and the FCSNM.

The Friends of Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument’s mission is to support the protection, restoration, and conservation of the Monument through service, advocacy and education. Our Hike and Learn programs are designed to introduce the public to different topics and locations within the Monument. Hike and Learns are co-created with local scientists, historians, artists, students, and more.
