Team Winter? Genesee County Parks Has Got You Covered.

February 5, 2016 | Amy McMillan

February has an odd place in the psyche of those of us who live in the Snowbelt.  For people who look forward all fall to winter, February is usually the last month that they can truly count on to provide them with snow for skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, sledding, snow angel-making and ice for ice fishing; February is truly the shortest month of the year.  For people who look forward all winter to nothing but summer, February is a long slog of ice, snow, cold, and slush.  It doesn’t matter if it’s 28 or 29 days, February is the longest shortest month of the year.

Now, I am not a fan of cold weather in any shape or form, but I am a cup is half full kind of girl, so, in my mind, February is “The Gateway to Spring”. All I have to do is stick Winter out until March.  No matter what Punxsutawney Phil says.

No matter which camp you fall in to, February is a great month in the Genesee County Parks.  Snowmobiling, sledding, snowshoeing, cross country skiing?  We’ve got it. Ice fishing?  We’ve got that, too.  So done with winter?  Set For-Mar Nature Preserve and Arboretum as the destination on your GPS and enjoy these great programs in the great indoors.

Whether you are on Team Winter or on Team Any Season That Is Not Winter, the Genesee County Parks has got you covered.
