8/13 - AUGUST HIKE: Hickory Creek Preserve

July 30, 2017

 

On Sunday, August 13th at 1:00PM, we're heading to Hickory Creek Preserve, LaPorte Road Access.  

 

This preserve protects a diversity of habitats, including forest, prairie, savanna, wetland and a portion of Hickory Creek.

 

Wildlife found at the preserve includes more than 50 bird species, such as the pileated woodpecker, yellow-rumped warbler, brown creeper and hermit thrush.

 

The preserve is also home to a variety of plant species, including lead plant, beechwood sedge, yellow trout lily, prairie gentian and wild senna.  

 

The preserve has a great trail that could be a bit muddy in spots if conditions are rainy so REMEMBER TO DRESS APPROPRIATELY, bring raingear, drinking water and appropriate trail snacks!

 

See you there!
