Hiking Basics: Go Take a Hike Wednesday, March 28, 6:30 - 8 p.m. If you’ve ever been told to “go take a hike”, now’s the time to take up the challenge. Learn what to consider when planning a hike at the Verona Public Library on Wednesday, March 28, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Experienced staff from REI Co-op will discuss the basics of hiking, including trip planning, essential items, equipment, and safety precautions, along with local resources and places to go. With your new-found knowledge, you’ll even be prepared to hike and explore the Ice Age Trail. This presentation is part of March Mammoth, an exploration of the Ice Age world with special events for all ages at the Verona Public Library from March 1 through April 3. The March Mammoth exhibit features real and replica fossils, including life-size replicas of a giant woolly mammoth skull and a ferocious saber-toothed cat skeleton on display. The March Mammoth exhibit and presentations are the first events made possible and supported by the Verona Public Library Endowment Fund.
