Where: Meet at Maxwell Natural Area parking lot. Group will meet and together cross the crosswalk to Pineridge Natural Area When: Friday, March 8, 2-4 pm Program Description: Discover Woodland, wetland, and prairie habitats and the varied plants and animals that can be found there. Explore how the web of life encourages support as well as competition, and consider how we can be respectful of the resident wildlife. We’ll hike about two miles around Dixon Reservoir. Accessibility: Program takes place on dirt trails with occasional rock hazards, and little elevation gain. Trails may be muddy. Restrooms at parking lot. . What to Bring: Dress appropriately for the weather forecast. Bring in multiple layers for both active walking and standing still. Bring sunscreen, a hat and gloves, closed-toe, sturdy shoes, and plenty of water. Trails may be muddy so please wear proper footwear. You may wish to bring binoculars, if you have them. Hiking poles are a great option if you are concerned about balance on uneven/muddy terrain. ___________________________________________________________________ People of all abilities and disabilities are welcome to participate in all programs and we are happy to make any appropriate accommodations.
