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.
Strawberry Moon – wide open spaces: Meet at the picnic shelter for an introduction into night vision in animals and humans, then climb a gentle slope to experience the rising moon (8:27pm). Sun sets at 8:23pm, 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.
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL ATTENDEES. REGISTRATION INFORMATION WILL BE AVAILABLE TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO EACH HIKE.
