Nature / Culture Hike

Saturday, Sept. 8, 2024 @ 1 pm – 4 pm

Join Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) Archaeology Professor, Julie Zimmermann, on SATURDAY, SEPT. 28, 2024, from 1 PM – 4 PM for our Fall – Nature/Culture Hike. This 3-hour hike introduces you to the natural environment of Cahokia Mounds and how it shaped the Mississippian culture. For your safety, we suggest you wear appropriate clothing (i.e., sturdy shoes, hat/sun visor), bring water, sunscreen, bug spray, and snacks. Please be mindful of the trails and leave them better than how you found them. Please see that any and all refuse is properly disposed of near the Interpretive Center. This event is FREE and open to the public. You DO NOT NEED TO RSVP for this even. Meet Julie Zimmermann in front of the Interpretive Center about 15 minutes before start of hike.

Please call (618) 346-5160 with questions.
