Oct 10 – Guided Nature Hike at Hilltop Farm Nature Preserve

Date: October 10, 2020
Time: 1:30 pm  to  4:30 pm

We’ve restored 19 acres of pollinator habitat at Hilltop Farm Nature Preserve. Join volunteer Chrys Cook, who has lead the restoration, for a walk through the wildflowers and woods.

RSVP is required. Purchase your ticket here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/guided-nature-hike-at-hilltop-farm-nature-preserve-tickets-122308017573

The event will start in the pollinator habitat, looping around fields of native wildflowers. Chrys will share what’s growing and help visitors get to know the butterflies, bees, birds, and other wildlife that call this preserve home. The pollinator loop is over one mile long, with a wide grassy, flat trail. After the pollinator loop, participants can call it a day, or head into the woods to see who calls the forest home. The forest section could add another mile or two, depending on folks’ interest. This nature walk’s pace will be slow and easy, and allow for social distancing.

This is a socially distanced event. Masks will be required during sign-in, and any time social distancing cannot be maintained. However, we are designing the event to be spread out, and limiting registration to 6 participants, so social distancing should be quite manageable. Thank you for helping keep everyone healthy!

This event is part of our fall events series. Check out our events raising funds for conservation (like our Butterfly Photography Workshop, Outdoor Yoga, Intro to Nature Journaling, and our Fall Carry-Out Picnic.) as well as our free events for families.

We cannot host our Annual Dinner (our main annual fundraiser) like normal this year, so this event series is helping to fill the fundraising gap! Chrys is a member of Oak Heritage, and she is donating her time and expertise, so the funds we raise from this event go directly to protecting nature in southeast Indiana. (You can become a member, too: https://oakheritageconservancy.org/get-involved/join/

This event happens rain or shine. No refunds on ticket sales.

Our event series is possible because of support from Oak Heritage Conservancy members, as well as our sponsors, including Ameriprise Financial Services Greensburg, Bear Forestry, RBSK Partners PC, and Friendship State Bank.
