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.
Nature Journaling: Document your adventure. Come hike up the Willow Creek Trail and pause along the way to practice nature journaling in a lovely outdoor setting. Observe the beauty of the area while an experienced artist assists with illustration technique and practice. Artists of all levels of experience are welcome to join! If you can hold a pencil, you’re an artist!
Meet at the parking lot on the south end of the baseball fields at Prairie Sky Park, on the north side of Crossington Way. We’ll walk the Willow Spring Trail, so expect a moderate to a briefly steep incline with little to no shade and a 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.
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL ATTENDEES. REGISTRATION DETAILS TO BE POSTED 1 WEEK PRIOR TO HIKE.
