MORE:
Thanks to today’s snow storm, Chicagoans can join us at Northerly Island tomorrow for snow trekking around the 91-acre peninsula on snow shoes or cross country skis. 
 
Equipment is available to check out for $5 for two hours of skiing and trekking at the Northerly Island field house.  Snowshoes and cross country skis are checked out on a first come, first served basis.  Please remember to bring a valid ID.  If you have your own cross country skis or snowshoes, it is free to ski and trek around the island!
 
While circling the island look for winter birds, winter 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.
