Join us at Heartland Prairie at Gordon Moore Park in Alton for these bimonthly hikes, held on every second and fourth Tuesday of the months April through October.

These walks are free and open to the public.

Walks will focus on identifying native plants and birds.

We will discuss the plants in our newer sections at the observation deck until approximately 6:00 p.m. so if you are running late, you can still meet us in the front section of the prairie.

Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring water.

Extra Session

At 5:00 p.m. on the nights of the walks, we will also be offering a short, hands-on class explaining how to start and maintain a prairie. The class will focus on identifying native plants and eliminating invasives. .
