Explore the winter magic of Patrick Marsh Wildlife Area on a 1.5 mile hike with Groundswell Conservancy. Our guide, Vince Brandl, will share the science of the marsh and scenic highlights of this local gem as we hike. This easy trail will be lit with candles guiding you to a toasty bonfire. Warm drinks and roasted marshmallows await you at the end of the trail.

When: The hike will start at 4:30pm from the parking lot on the north side of the marsh. The bonfire will be near the kettle pond from 4:30pm - 6:30pm. Join us for either!

What to Bring: Dress for the weather. Bring your own snowshoes or warm hiking boots for these ungroomed trails. A flashlight might also be useful.

This is a FREE event! Bring a friend, or three, and enjoy the amazing Patrick Marsh.
