Some would describe snowshoeing as an outdated form of recreational entertainment. For Audubon Wildlife Refuge visitor manager Jackie Jacobson, snowshoeing is an ever-popular sport that any age group can enjoy as long as there is enough snow to do so. Since this is North Dakota, finding enough snow is rarely a problem. Over a dozen healthy folks from age 8 to 84 ventured out on Sunday to enjoy some snowshoeing. The cost was free and while some brought their own shoes, the Refuge had a selection of various sizes and styles of snowshoes available for the class to use.
