Free guided snowshoe tours are provided at Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery, all equipment provided. From December 15 through January 27, tours are at 1 p.m. on Fridays and on Saturdays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
“Last year, 290 people snowshoed with us,” said Julia Pinnix, Information and Education Manager. Tours are led by hatchery staff, biologist from the Mid-Columbia Fish & Wildlife Conservation Office, and volunteers. The tours explore the Icicle Creek Nature Trail, a 1-mile loop on the hatchery grounds.
