snowshoers-2.jpgEven though the ground is not snow-covered yet, before you know it flakes will fly -- so now's the time to start planning your snowy adventures. A great activity to add to your calendar is snowshoeing at Gore Place in Waltham, where you can explore hidden places while tromping around the 48 acre grounds. Clad with activity packs and brightly colored snowshoes, children with an adult can search for animal tracks with a magnifying glass and periscope, make a pinecone bird feeder, and visit the sheep, goats, rabbits and chickens on the farm. Each borrowed backpack comes with a pair of children's snowshoes and activities. Adult snowshoes are also available. Although this might be stating the obvious, this activity is only scheduled when snow is on the ground. But when it is, just ring the bell at the Mansion to get your backpack and begin your adventure! Dec. 10 through March 13, 2013. Mon. - Fri., 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.; Sat., noon - 3 p.m. Ages 3 and up. One-hour backpack rental, $5. Snowshoe rentals $5 per pair. Gore Place Mansion, 52 Gore St., Waltham. www.goreplace.org
