Discover the splendors of Green Lake in the winter on a moonlight walk with the Green Team. Candles illuminate the path as participants make their way across the ice to Green Lake’s beautiful conservancy property, Sugar Island. Following a short hike, participants can warm up and chat with friends and neighbors in front of a roaring bonfire. Hot chocolate NOT be provided this year as a precaution, but please feel free to bring your own cup and beverage. Make the experience complete by bringing along your own sandwiches, s’mores, or hot dogs to cook over the fire. A nearly full moon and a candle-lit trail will provide light, but participants might want to bring a flashlight for additional light while walking. Please note that the walk to and from Sugar Island is about half a mile. Have snowshoes or cross-country skis? Want to bring a sled for children? Bring them along!
GEAR TO BRING: Bring a cup or thermos and your own beverage if you'd like, and a flashlight for hiking. Feel free to bring snowshoes, or skis, though they are not required. Sleds are also welcome.
PARKING: Parking will be at Sunset County Park along CTH A in Green Lake, located next to the Green Lake Sailing School. From there, cross CTH A onto the frozen Silver Creek Inlet and follow the candle-lit luminaries that form a walking path. Volunteers will also be there to help guide participants. The walk is conducted at each individual’s leisure.
