Each year, RidgeGate teams up with the South Suburban Parks and Recreation District to provide free, guided nature hikes throughout the spring, summer and fall. These hikes are led by professional naturalists from SSPRD, 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, but registration is required. Please register below!
Celebrating the Summer Solstice
Led by Beth and Peggy from South Suburban Parks and Recreation
Experience the spirituality of nature on our summer solstice hike up to the bluffs trail summit. We’ll learn about how the summer solstice has been celebrated throughout history, and in a variety of cultures. It’s a beautiful, healthy way to mark the first evening of summer, and the longest day of the year. Kids are welcome, ages 5+ recommended.
