AWA Hike: Spring Sandhills and Horse Lake

Friday, June 8, 2018

Sandhills and Horse Lake
$25 members / $50 non-members

With Heinz Unger and AWA Conservation Specialist, Joanna Skrajny.

A full day hike in the Ghost River Wilderness.
Important: water shoes are essential because the hike goes through a a wetland in the spring.

After hiking through a partially cleared forest, the “Sandhills” are reached. They are a unique feature in the foothills ridges with some areas covered by bare sand only. Further beyond are extensive wetlands and a small lake in an area frequented by wild horses.
