The evening of Saturday, February 8th the Friends of Rydell and Glacial Ridge Refuges Association will be hosting a Candlelight Ski and Owl Prowl event at Rydell National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) nearErskine, MN. The timing of this event coincides with a full moon, and hopefully good snow conditions. The Rydell Visitor Center will be open throughout the
event, which will run from 5:15pm to 9:00pm. Although all five of Rydell NWR’s trails will be open for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, Golden Pond and Church Lake trails will be groomed and lighted for this event. If you have questions, contact
Lisa Wiersma at 218-687-2229 extension 10 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If temperatures are below zero or wind chills are in the double-digits below zero, the event will be cancelled and potentially rescheduled at a later date.
