2016 Celebration

2016 NCTA Celebration

The Cambria Hotel and Conference Center; Fargo, ND
September 15-17, 2016



Take some great hikes on the North Country National Scenic Trail as we #HikeFargo and beyond.

Please join us for the 2016 NCTA Annual Celebration in Fargo, North Dakota! The Dakota Prairie Chapter, along with the Sheyenne River Valley and the Laurentian Lakes Chapters, is excited about showing you the great new sections of the NCNST that we have built in the past several years up here “North of Normal.” The theme of the Celebration is Building Trails and Discovering History in our Prairies, Valleys, and Woodlands.

You will get to explore North Dakota prairies and grasslands, hike along interesting riverfront trails in urban Fargo-Moorhead, and venture into the beautiful Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge in Minnesota. Interpreters on buses and hikes will help you understand the scenic, natural, cultural, and historic features of these areas and explain how the environment and history affect trail building activities in unique ways.

The Celebration is designed especially for members of the NCTA and is also open to the general public. The schedule will give attendees time to hike, learn, socialize, and relax. In most cases, you will travel to the event venues on comfortable, air conditioned coach buses with snacks and beverages provided. Besides a great collection of hikes of all types, non-hiking events will be available each day as well.
