Kathio plans winter events

Mille Lacs Kathio State Park has scheduled two upcoming events. The first, Winter Geocaching Adventure for Beginners, kicks off at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23 at the Interpretive Center. Participants can bring their own GPS units or use one of the devices provided.

Showshoeing into the Past will be offered at 1 p.m. Saturday March 2 also at the Interpretive Center. Following an indoor look at some ancient artifacts, participants will take a short snowshoe hike to archeologists’ sites where evidence of a 1600s village was found.

To register for either event, which is required, stop by the center or call 320-532-3269 and leave a name, phone number and the number of people attending.
