Each year, RidgeGate teams up with the South Suburban Parks and Recreation District to provide free, guided nature hikes throughout RidgeGate’s expansive bluffs trail system.
These hikes are led by professional naturalists from the district, and offer insight and education into the natural ecosystems within the open space at RidgeGate, while offering a chance to get some fresh air and exercise. Hikes are free to the public.
Coyote–under the light of an almost-full moon: Learn what to do when a coyote howls nearby or seems a little too friendly as you hike. We’ll walk at dusk and share coyote stories before the almost full moon rises at 7:41pm. The coyote/human connection endures in part due to our shared ability to adapt well. You’ll learn some easy ways to keep coyotes wild and enjoy our shared habitat.
Meet at the Bluffs Regional parking lot off of Crooked Stick Trail, south of Lincoln and off of Ridgegate Parkway. We’ll walk the Bluffs Regional Trail, so expect a moderate incline with little to no shade and a gravel path that doesn’t accommodate strollers well. Come dressed for the weather with sturdy walking shoes, drinking water, sunblock, hat and insect repellent as desired.
