First Day Hike at Prophetstown State Park Jan 1

Celebrate the beginning of 2018 by taking a guided hike at Prophetstown State Park on New Year’s Day.  Join the naturalist at 1:00pm at the Visitor Center, where we’ll take a stroll through the prairie.

During the hike, we’ll have an opportunity to highlight some new features in the area, including several Eagle projects completed by Boy Scouts.  These include bluebird boxes, a bat condo, and a new structure at the Native American village.  We’ll probably do some birding along the way, so bring your binoculars if you have them.

Hike begins at the Visitor Center.  We’ll end our hike at the Village, where we’ll have hot drinks and a warm fire going in the Council House.

This program is free and open to the public, and there is no gate fee at this time.

Start a new tradition with your friends and family as you get some healthy exercise and enjoy the great outdoors. “First Day Hikes” are promoted by the National Association for State Park Directors.
