Moonlight Snowshoe Event

What are you doing tonight? If you don’t have plans you might want to schedule a snowshoe tour!

The Big Bear Discovery Center and Big Bear’s Knickerbocker Mansion and Bistro will host guided moonlight snowshoe tours on Friday evenings through winter 2009.

A naturalist will educate participants about how to get started snowshoeing followed by a guided tour through the forest (approximately 1.5 miles).

This is a great opportunity to learn about winter ecology, how Big Bear’s wildlife adapts during the winter conditions while learning more about the natural history of the mountains.

The moonlight tour is suitable for both beginners and experienced enthusiasts.

Following the hike participants can spend an evening sharing a piping hot bowl of soup and delicious organic bread at Knickerbocker Mansion’s Bistro or sample Chef Thomas Bicanic’s Friday evening menu which includes pastas, salads and burgers.

The moonlight snowshoe tours are scheduled for January 9, February 6 and March 6, 2009.

Reservations are required and space is limited. The fee is $35 per person and the hike will take place from 5 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.

Participants will meet their naturalist guide at the Knickerbocker Mansion, located at 869 Knickerbocker Avenue in Big Bear Lake, California.

Snowshoes are available for those that do not already have them.

Call (909) 382-2790 for additional information.

The Discovery Center is also offering guided snowshoe tours from the center on Saturday and Sunday. Snowshoes and additional transportation are provided. Reservations recommended and space limited to 12.

The Discover Center daytime tour fees are Adults: $35, Children (8-16) $25 and will be held January 3rd through March 14th (snow conditions permitting). Please call for further information (909)382-2790.
