Join Mass Audubon for a morning trek along the Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary Beach Loop Trail — all the way to the channel that feeds Allens Pond — in snowshoes! Plan on enjoying a coastal trek of approximately 2 miles and winter wildlife viewing while remaining high and dry on top of the snow pack. Hikers will look for signs of animal activity through tracks, scat, and other tell-tale signs, and then scan the skies for migrant snowy owls and winter waterfowl.

PLEASE NOTE: Participants must provide their own snowshoes.

What to do if there’s no snow? Then grab your winter hiking boots — we’re headed out anyways!

Cost: $10 Mass Audubon members, $12 nonmembers
