Short Description of Activity
A winter field trip to the Swaner Preserve in Park City to learn about their beaver program, habitat restoration, dam construction, etc. We had great participation with 14 Broads in attendance and everyone on snowshoes.
We exceeded our expectations for participation with several new people joining the hike that we had not meet before. We also had one of our new leadership team members organize the event after we had all agreed on the event location.
