Nature Trek: A Glacial Perspective

Did you know glaciers contributed to the formation of the Illinois River Valley? Learn about how the last Ice Age shaped the present-day landscape.

Meet at the Therkildsen Field Station at Emiquon, 11316 N. Prairie Road, Lewistown, to begin the hike through The Nature Conservancy’s Emiquon Preserve.  Information will be presented by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services’s and Dickson Mounds’ staff.  Participants must dress appropriately for the outdoors, provide their own drinks and snacks, and be able to hike comfortably with an elevation gain and across uneven terrain.

 

The program is free and is sponsored by the Emiquon Partnership.
