Prairie Trail, Richmond, IL
Walk with Friends of Hackmatack NWR! We invite you to join us for a 5K walk on the Prairie Trail on Saturday, Oct. 16. We’ll meet up in the north parking lot at Richmond Burton Community High School, 8311 State Rte 31 and head north for our walk. We’ll make a first stop at the oak savanna at the northside of the school property. We will view all the restoration our volunteer crews have accomplished over the past 18 months. From there we’ll head onto the Prairie Trail and walk to another Hackmatack NWR site that volunteers have also helped to restore — the 11-acre Blackmon Tract, located along the trail across Rt. 12 from Richmond Village Hall. We’ll take a refreshment break here before heading back to the high school.
If you plan to join us for our 5K walk, please register here.
