Meet Chris Burney and Ivor Kincade at Powers Park on Hawthorne Rd. to car pool to the 500-acre Prairie Creek Preserve. The Preserve encompasses a variety of uplands and lowlands, and we’ll sample several of them on this trip. Wear rubber boots or old shoes you don’t mind getting wet, as the trail can be soggy or even flooded. (NOTE: Meeting time is 8 a.m., not 6 a.m. as shown on the printable one-page schedule.)
Difficulty: 2 (may involve uneven terrain one to two miles).
