Join the Tettegouche State Park naturalist Feb. 1 for a one-day introduction to winter camping. Learn how to build a traditional quinzhee — an insulated snow cave — for sleeping.

Other topics covered will be cooking outdoors in the snow and tricks for staying dry and warm in the winter. Participants also will discuss and try out some methods of transporting gear through the snow.

The one-day workshop will cover everything you need to know about camping in the winter. Participants who choose to do so will be able to sleep in the constructed quinzhees and try out the skills they have just learned. Come for just a day of winter fun and learning, or make a weekend out of it. Hey, it’s camping with no bugs and no poison ivy!

The event is set from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is free, but you will need a state park pass to enter the park. Register by calling the park naturalist at 218-353-8809 or emailing kurt.mead@state.mn.us
