NEW & FREE! "Connecting You to Nature" Hikes

Wednesday, October 02, 2019
05:30 PM - 07:30 PM

Explore natural areas on these special hikes!

Join Natural Areas Coordinator Matt Balk during these special hikes through district natural areas. Learn about restoration and how to identify native and invasive plants. See how each natural area changes throughout the summer, and maybe lend a hand collecting seeds or trash. Your explorations may take you off-trail, so dress in shoes and clothes that can get dirty. These hikes take place in rain or shine. Trail snacks are provided! Call 217-384-4062 by 4pm each Wednesday to let us know that you are coming.
