Docents to lead 2 weekend hikes

The Leelanau Conservancy will host two snowshoe hikes this weekend in Elmwood and Cleveland townships.

Docents Dave Amos and Karl Hausler will lead a snowshoe hike at 10 a.m. Saturday at the DeYoung Natural Area. Participants are asked to park in the Strang Road lot off Cherry Bend Road. Boots will likely suffice for those without snowshoes.

Later Saturday, docents JoAnne Gerben, Kathy Ricord and Sharon Oriel will lead a snowshoe through the Swanson Preserve at 1 p.m. Hikers will see huge white pines, cedars and tamaracks covered in snow. Depending on the weather, snowshoes or heavy boots are recommended.

Advanced registration is requested and can be completed at leelanauconservancy.org.
