Nature Center Hosts Two November Events
The Pioneers Park Nature Center invites the public to two events in November:
- A guided Night Hike is set for 7 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, November 11. The cost is $8 per person.
- A Hawk Watching Trip to the Hitchcock Nature Center near Crescent, Iowa I set for Saturday, November 19. The van will leave the Nature Center at 11 a.m., and is expected to return about 4:30 p.m. The Hitchcock Nature Center is recognized as one of the top 25 hawk watches in North America as thousands of eagles, hawks and other raptors pass through the area as they migrate south. Programs will include live raptor demonstrations, a guided hike and refreshments. The cost is $45 per person and includes transportation and a light snack. The Hitchcock Nature Center will also accept donations at this event to help support their programming.
The reservation deadline for both events is November 9. Contact the Nature Center at 402-441-7895 to sign up. For more information, visit parks.lincoln.ne.gov/naturecenter or @LNKnaturecenter on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
