Rockland — Georges River Land Trust will host a guided snowshoe hike at Wheeler Bay Wildlife Sanctuary in St. George Sunday, Jan. 20, at 6 p.m. Bring your snowshoes and join Jocelyn Paquette for a 1-mile guided adventure.

This event is free and all are welcome to attend. Registration by phone is required.

After the walk, Paquette will warm participants up with a hot beverage and sweet treat at her home on the edge of the quarry. She will also share amazing tales of how the quary is being restored to a bountiful wildlife sanctuary, and all the wildlife that now call the place home.

This event is limited to 25 guests and is suitable for children; register at 594-5166 by Jan. 18. Registered guests will receive an email with directions to the site. Dress warmly, bring your own snowshoes and headlight or flashlight.
