Winter Wellness

As Minnesotans, we are all too familiar with the gloom and doom that winter can bring in the Upper Midwest. Just because the weather gets dark and chilly, doesn't mean our bodies need to feel the same! There are lots of ways to get active, stay engaged, and boost our moods in the winter. Here are some upcoming events in February that you can take advantage of and improve your wellness in the winter!

  • Candlelight Walk at Afton State Park on Sunday, February 3, 2024
  • Bird Hike at Pine Point Regional Park on Saturday, February 10, 2024
  • Ice Fishing with Let's Go Fishing and Wild River's Conservancy on Saturday, February 17, 2024
