Schrier Park Winter Sports Fest

Saturday, Portage held its annual Winter Sports Fest in Schrier Park. It's a low-key, free event which gave people a chance to try snow shoes or cross-country skis, to ride in a horse-drawn sleigh, or to learn about dogsledding or winter camping. Dan Keto of the Kalamazoo Nature Center discussed nature in Winter. Lee's Sports provided equipment and instruction.

I tried a pair of snowshoes and enjoyed hiking the snowy trails.

update: Schrier Park Winter Sports Fest 2012 is scheduled for Saturday January 21, from noon-3:30pm. Free.
