Property Hike

Better Know A Property” Hike

Wednesday, November 1st, 5:00 PM

Becker East Wildlife Area

Reservations Required

November is the perfect time to explore Iowa’s woodlands, as the thick undergrowth of summer subsides and cool temperatures force biting insects into hiding. This naturalist-led hike of Clayton County’s Becker East property, a rugged and undeveloped woodland, will focus on late autumn’s role in the life cycles of Iowa’s native plants, animals, and people.

Due to parking limitations, this hike is limited to 14 participants who will shuttle in a 15-passenger van to the site from Bootleggers Bar & Restaurant, roughly half a mile away. Please call to reserve a spot. Participants should come prepared for hiking with sturdy footwear and water. The shuttle will return to Bootleggers by roughly 6:30 PM.

Pleasant Ridge Wildlife Area is roughly 10 miles south of Guttenberg, IA along the Great River Road (C9Y). Shuttle will meet at Bootleggers along Highway 52 in Millville. For more information call the Osborne Nature Center at 563-245-1516 or visit
