“It’s nice to get these students out here who don’t normally — who won’t normally participate in these winter outdoor recreation activities,” said JJ Ferrington, Trailhead Host Coordinator. “It gives them the skill to get out here and enjoy the trails and the nature that our winter — that our area provides.” The day was made possible through a grant from the Community Foundation of Marquette County.
The Noquemanon Trail Network partnered up with North Star Academy for a day of winter recreation for their students. This was a reward for North Star students for good behavior in class. Lessons were given in snow shoeing and cross country skiing with a bonfire available to warm up.
