Take a short guided snowshoe hike around the shore of Astotin Lake takes you atop the snow like a snowshoe hare while stars twinkle overhead. As you march along, the welcoming crackle of a campfire eclipses the soft sounds of nature surrounding you.

With a park interpreter and Orion as your guide, gaze up into a sky full of stars and learn to navigate the night sky of the Beaver Hills Dark Sky Preserve. Without the glow of city lights you’ll see more than you knew existed!

Includes:
Parks Canada interpretative program
Use of snowshoes during the program

What to bring:
Headlamp or flashlight with a red light or red filter
Snow/ski pants
