Free outdoor fun offered at annual Winterfest

Winterfest1

Winter seems to last half the year in Michigan, so bundle up and love it. The local Izaak Walton League is gearing up for their annual Winterfest to be held Saturday, Jan. 23, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It will be held at their conservation center, 6541 Myers Lake Rd. (one half mile north of Cannonsburg Ski Lodge).

Youngsters will enjoy ice-fishing in the stocked pond, sledding, snow-shoeing, archery, candle-making, garden winterscaping, crafts, hot-dogs for lunch, and more. All is for free, unless you’d like to make a donation to the club, “defenders of soil, air, water, woods, and wildlife.” Recently the club sponsored a raising “salmon-in-the-classroom” project with Christine Laug’s fourth grade class at Roguewood Elementary.

Bring your family and friends to explore what the “Ikes” have to offer, and enjoy some of winter’s wonders.
