Winter Hike 1:30 – 4:30 PM Winter presents the opportunity to explore the interior of the Cedarburg Bog. Field Station Director, Jim Reinartz will lead the annual hike into the heart of the Bog. This is a 4-mile hike, and weather or snow and ice conditions can make this hike challenging. In the past we have hiked in bitter cold, on a warm day with wet slush over the ice, in deep snow, with no snow at all on very slick ice, and when we were lucky, with a little snow over solid ice. If ice conditions in the Bog are not safe, we will hike in the uplands instead. The Field Station website (http://uwm.edu/field-station/) will be updated several days prior to the hike with snow and ice conditions. Chili Dinner 4:30 PM The Friends of the Cedarburg Bog are hosting a Chili Dinner Potluck after the Winter Hike. The Friends will have lots of chili ready as well as beverages. Bring a dish to share – side dish, salad, dessert – all are appreciated and enjoyed! It’s a wonderful way to finish up the hike but please join us for the potluck even if you don’t plan to hike. Suggested donation for the Hike and Dinner is $5
