Snowshoe event held this Saturday

With snowshoes clasped to your feet and binoculars glued to your eyes, you see a big bald eagle perched on a skeletal tree branch hundreds of feet away.

Beside you, a wildlife biologist explains that eagles such as this usually come down from Canada or Alaska and winter at Lake Tahoe. And in recent years bald eagles have even started staying year round at Tahoe.

That might be just one of the things you learn that day. That is if you join the League to Save Lake Tahoe and Forest Service snowshoe hiking or cross country skiing on Saturday. The purpose of the event is to view wildlife and learn about Tahoe’s winter animals.

Participants are asked to meet at the League’s office, 955 Emerald Bay Road, at 9 a.m. There a bus will take the participants out to the hiking spot and bring them back by noon.

Discounted equipment rentals are available, and those interested are encouraged to call the League at (530) 541-5388.

The League, an advocate for Tahoe for more than 40 years, holds similar recreation events each month.
