Join The Nature Institute in Heartland Prairie at Gordon Moore Park in Alton for these bimonthly hikes. Walks will focus on identifying native plants and birds. The group will discuss the plants in newer sections at the observation deck until approximately 6 p.m. so if you are running late, you can still meet us in the front section of the prairie. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring water, binoculars and a plant identification book. Drinks and snacks will be served after the walk.
At 5 p.m. on the nights of the walks, we will also be offering a short, hands-on class explaining how to start and maintain a prairie. The class will focus on identifying native plants and eliminating invasives. Bring questions, protective gloves and clippers if possible.
For questions, please call (618) 466-9930.
