Snowshoe Hike At Pilgrim River Watershed
March 9th, 2 PM  
The Keweenaw Land Trust will be hosting our first outing of 2013 at the Pilgrim River Watershed on March 9th. Bring your snowshoes and come enjoy the day with your guide, Bill Leder.

Attendees will get an in-depth tour of a local sustainably managed forest that offers excellent recreational and educational opportunities. As an introduction to the Pilgrim River Watershed Project, the area's diverse flora and fauna, its unique topography, forestry value, and the challenges and opportunities associated with the project will be explained. Bill Leder has helped lead the Copper Country Chapter of Trout Unlimited to move the Pilgrim Project along and will answer questions related to the project and the property.

The event is free and open to the public. Plan to be at the Boundary Road Trailhead at 2 PM. Visit the Pilgrim River Watershed Project's website (link below) for directions to the trailhead. Parking may be limited due to snow drifts - be careful when parking along the road!

The Pilgrim River Watershed Project aims to ensure that the land is sustainably managed to protect healthy water quality and habitats, and to secure permanent public access for a variety of recreational uses that are compatible with forestry and natural resource protection. A component of the project involves the purchase of conservation easements from a private landowner to accomplish the project goals. The project is led by KLT and the Copper Country Chapter of Trout Unlimited, and includes many other local partners.
