Tale of Two Prairies

July 24, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Two different prairies, two different ecosystems, one story of conservation.  Join us for a morning comparing two high-quality examples of Illinois’ most famous landscape; prairie.

Guided hikes will start at either Ridgetop Hill Prairie Nature Preserve or Letcher Basin Land & Water Reserve, and switch halfway through.  A hayrack trailer will be used to tour Letcher Basin, but Ridgetop Hill Prairie will require a hike across uneven ground and tall vegetation.  Choose your starting location (either Letcher Basin or Ridgetop) during registration.

Please bring water and wear sturdy shoes, long pants, and bug spray.

Register here!


Note!  The event will take place on mown trails that are uneven in places, so please no strollers.  As with all ParkLands preserves, dogs are not allowed at this event (learn more about our dog policy).
