STC Annual Meeting was November 13th. Big thanks to our guest Dr. Bill Rose who illuminated an intrigued group on how Swedetown’s geology is like icing on a hot chocolate cake. We certainly added to our knowledge of what is underground below our trails.

Winter Trails Day is a national event with 100 locations around the country. Swedetown’s 2019 Winter Trails Day was a great success. The idea is to introduce people to new outdoor activities to stay active in winter. With fine weather and great snow, we had over 130 people trying out the trails, snowshoes, skis and snow bikes. Thanks everyone for coming and much thanks to Cross Country Sports for supplying rental gear for no charge.
