Have you ever wanted to go a bit deeper into your nature experience?

Curiosity and a heightened awareness of landscape features, wildlife, and plant life make a normal hike so much more rewarding and enjoyable. At Indian Creek Nature Center, we are ready to help you go there with our new Nature Stroll series. Every other week, a naturalist will guide you on a themed hike in a particular habitat at the Nature Center, taking time to point out the things you may have missed when walking on your own. The pace is relaxed, and stopping to observe is highly encouraged!

Join us for Nature Stroll: Floodplains with Summer Growth on Monday, June 6 from 6-7:30 PM. Historically, the floodplains fill in early summer, but recently we have observed changes that are affecting flood times. We will talk about how these changes affect our summer growth as we explore the ecological corridor surrounding the Cedar River and Indian Creek. It’s a beautiful and fascinating habitat, and the Nature Center’s location at the mouth of Indian Creek, where it flows into the Cedar River, is the perfect place to explore it.

Nature Strolls are $6 per adult, $4 if you’re a member of the Nature Center, and $2 for children ages 3-12. Add all the Nature Stroll summer dates to your calendar! All take place from 6-7:30 PM. Pre-registration is required; visit our calendar at indiancreeknaturecenter.org or call us at 319-362-0664 to register today.
