Winter Hiking 101

With endless blue skies and blankets of snow, winter in Minnesota is a memorable time for hiking. But cold temperatures, short days, and tricky terrain may make it intimidating to the uninitiated. This conversational event featuring founder of @BrownPeopleCamping Ambreen Tariq will introduce the basics of winter hiking so that more people can benefit from being outdoors during Minnesota’s signature season.

Ambreen uses storytelling to share how her life experiences as a Muslim South-Asian American immigrant woman have shaped her love for the outdoors and to promote enjoyment of the outdoors for everyone in their own authentic ways. From dressing in layers, to weather-worthy footwear, and finding a nearby trail that suits you and your family, Ambreen’s storytelling style will encourage your adventurous spirit.
