FREE SNOWSHOEING equipment available at The West Woods Nature Center for your use.
Back this year (2016-2017): our popular free snowshoe borrowing program at The West Woods!
And did we mention it's FREE?

At least a few inches of snow on the ground is needed, and the deeper the snow, the better.
Call-ahead reservations are preferred at 440-286-9516. Any un-reserved snowshoes are available at first-come, first-served basis. Borrowers must be 18+ to check out a pair; anyone younger must be accompanied by an adult, and no one under 40 pounds may use the snowshoes due to their weight.

Borrowing can take place any time 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and last up to two hours.
Registrants must sign a waiver form and leave a driver's license as a security deposit.
Please note that snowshoes may not leave The West Woods except for registered programs.
Want a more guided experience? Visit http://bit.ly/gpdsscall2017 and get your name on our call list for special snowshoe programs that will be "called into action" anytime now through March 1 whenever snow conditions are right.
