Celebrating Earth Day’s 50th Anniversary: Hike at Heins Creek Nature Preserve
April 22 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 pm
Join us for a special hike at the Door County Land Trust’s Heins Creek Nature Preserve to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. Across the world communities are working together to protect the places we love and need to sustain life on this planet. Discover Door County’s unique geology and biodiversity as we hike the preserve’s boreal forests and experience the unique microclimate found along the lakeshore that allows northern species to thrive this far south. Listen to the stories in the sand from the Native Americans and early settlers who once lived in these dunes. Learn about the Land Trust’s newest community conservation initiatives and ways to get more involved. This 1-mile hike will be relatively easy to traverse. Wear good hiking shoes, as we may encounter a few sandy and muddy sections along the trail.
Free • Open to the Public
