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.

A Walk Under the Full “Strawberry Moon”: Strawberry Moon – wide open spaces: Meet at the picnic shelter for an introduction into night vision in animals and humans, then climb a moderate slope to experience the rising moon (7:48pm). Sun sets at 8:30pm, so we’ll be descending in twilight and by the light of the full moon, using only our human night vision. Flashlights for emergencies only, please.

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.

PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL ATTENDEES. REGISTRATION DETAILS TO BE POSTED 1 WEEK PRIOR TO HIKE.
