Join Julie Zimmermann, PhD for the Cahokia Mounds Nature/Culture Hike on October 14, 2023, from 1pm-4pm. You will learn about native plants and animals and how the Mississippian culture interacted with them and the environment. This 2-hour hike will take you along some of the less commonly traveled trails, so make sure to wear appropriate clothing, sturdy shoes suitable for hiking, and to bring water. Sunscreen, bug spray, and snacks are advised, though make sure any refuse is properly disposed of at the Interpretive Center.
It is imperative that no one climb the mounds, as unauthorized foot trails on the sides of the mounds are causing severe erosional problems on these ancient monuments.
Please meet Dr. Zimmermann in front of the Interpretive Center.
This event is free and open to the public.
