O'Brien County Conservation
November 8, 2018
While winter may not officially arrive for another month, the O’Brien County Conservation Board is ready to help you prepare for winter recreation activities! The Conservation Board is again offering the opportunity to handcraft beautiful snowshoes.
Consider signing up for a snowshoe making class. This year the class will be held at the Prairie Heritage Center on Saturday, December 1 beginning at 1:00 p.m. However, orders for materials MUST be made by Friday, November 15!
There are several models to choose from. The Expedition Kit (which includes wooden frames) come in three styles – Ojibway, Huron and Bear Paw. Each kit includes the frame, nylon cording and binding. The material cost is $170. Another alternative is the Urban Kit (which includes an aluminum frame). The material cost for this type is $95. Once finished the shoes are not only incredibly serviceable but also are an object of beauty.Please call the Prairie Heritage Center at 712-295-7200 for more information about the class or the different styles.
