Explore the outdoors on snowshoes during Snowtrekking at Northerly Island during select dates this winter from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., weather permitting. See a new perspective of our city's natural area while circling the Island looking for winter birds, native animals, or enjoy the incredible view of Chicago?s skyline. Participants can also enjoy a good old fashioned snowball fight, build a snowman or two and take a break from the cold weather by warming up inside the field house. The cost is $5 to check out snowshoe equipment for two hours of snowtrekking on a first-come, first-served basis with a valid I.D. If you have your own equipment, it is free to trek around Northerly Island! There must be at least three inches of snow for us to host Snowtrekking at Northerly Island.
