ACT’s Third Shoes-n-Brews

ACT’s Third ‘Shoes-n-Brews: Tracking for Kids at Foss Forest & Polly’s Pancake Parlor

SUGAR HILL – The Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust (ACT) is hosting the third in its ‘Shoes & Brews series on Saturday, March 10th from 11:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.! Meet for a snowshoe (or walk depending on snow) and to learn some basics of tracking at the Foss Forest on Pearl Lake Rd in Sugar Hill at 11:30 a.m. then head down the road to Polly’s Pancake Parlor for snack and beverages (and yes – brews!) from about 1:30 – 3:30 p.m.

The outdoor portion is planned for approx. 1 to 1.5 hours with ACT volunteer Linda Moore leading and ACT Board Member Marilyn Booth co-hosting. This event is geared especially toward families with young kids, but all those interested are welcome. We’ll be moving at a slow to moderate pace mostly along trails at the lower end of the Foss Forest – conserved with ACT in 2001. Please leave your pups home for this one as tracking can be a challenge with canine companions along side.

Around 1:00 p.m. the group will make its way down the hill for the apres-walk at Polly’s Pancake Parlor. Come enjoy snacks, a beverage (adult or otherwise). Catch up with old friends and get to know new ones in your community over refreshments and a warm up! A big thank you goes out to Polly’s for providing all snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. Fear not, for those looking for an extra kick, a cash bar will also be available. All are free to come and go as needed. The event will officially run from 11:30 a.m. to about 3:30 p.m. with an invitation to stay for a sit down meal and enjoy the delicious fair!

Registration for the hike portion of this event is required – for your safety and enjoyment we must cap the walk at 15 participants so please be sure to pre-register ASAP.
