Java Jaunt Eastlake
September 12 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 amFREE
Join ACRES Land Management Director Casey Jones for a casual one-hour hike through the wetlands and remnant prairie of Eastlake, a property closed to the public.
This incredible place features several acres of what may be the easternmost expanse of original Midwest prairie grassland. For years, area botanists and prairie conservationists have collected the seeds of the native tall prairie dock, goldenrod and bush clover on the property. Visitors will explore this place following a few years of restoration work.
Visitors will be hiking off trail. Dress for wetland conditions and getting into dense plant life in spots.
Afterwards, tag along on a “treat yourself” stop at Light Rail Cafe. Hike will begin at Hansen Skating Center where parking is available.
No RSVP necessary; just come to this event on 09/12/2019 at 9:00 AM to begin the hike. For questions or comments contact: Reena Ramos at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (260) 637-2273
