    Five UMN Crookston students recently participated in the Candle Light Ski and Owl Prowl event at Rydell Wildlife National Refuge and Glacial Ridge.

    “Students from Japan, China, Ukraine, Burkina Fasso (West Africa) and Zambia said they were grateful for hand warmers and that they picked up on skiing pretty fast,” said Rae French, International Programs, Learning Abroad advisor.

    Temperatures have been favorable, French said, so while skiing they also enjoyed hearing the owls and the other sights and sounds that evening.
