Washington/Ozaukee County Chapter Night Hike

June 19 @ 7:00 pm

The Hike: The Cedar Lakes Segment highlights several of the Polk Kames while traversing agricultural fields, wetlands and mixed forest of old oaks, sugar maple, white birch and beech. During the winter, the north and east sides of the kames retain snow later in season. The spring months present a scattered display of woodland and prairie wildflowers, including trillium, wood anemone, mayapple, violets, jack-in-the-pulpit and many ferns. During the warmer days of the year, frog-laden ponds create an early morning and late evening chorus echoing between the kames.

Event details: Please join us for a hike between the full moon and first day of summer for a 4.4 mile round trip hike, which will include a return on the Kames Loop Trail. Wear comfortable hiking boots and dress appropriately for the weather. Be sure to bring a flashlight, insect repellent and water.

Location details: We will meet at the DNR’s Hwy. NN parking lot, 1/2 mile east of Hwy. 144, just north of Slinger.  Click here for directions. Watch for yellow “Ice Age Trail Event” signs.
