Spring fever is in the air and Prophetstown State Park has some fun hikes set up this Saturday, April 27, to get visitors out to the park to enjoy all the beautiful wildflowers and the lovely prairie landscape. From 11 am to 4 pm, participate in the "Prophetstown Prairie to Village Hike" where you will travel back in time to when Native Americans called this land their own. On the way to the village, everyone will learn about the importance of living where the two rivers meet and discover how Prophetstown got its name. You will also be able to tour the council house and other buildings.
At 2 pm, the "Eat and Be Well Plants Hike" is taking visitors on a journey of health and nutrition. Springtime welcomes an array of wildflowers that provide nutritional and health benefits and you will discover the edible and medicinal plants hiding in the woodlands -everyone will even snack on a few!
