About the event
Join us for a late morning walk and talk to learn about the unique natural history of the Door County Land Trust Heins Creek Nature Preserve. Discover the succession of Native American tribes that lived here after the last glaciers melted. Hear stories from a family member of the early settlers who endured the hardships of a wilderness to make this their home. Hike the trail through open sand dunes and into the forest on your way to the creek. Listen to the relaxing sound of flowing water as you learn about the spawning season for trout and suckers. You might even spot a juvenile trout while you hear the fascinating story of how everything in the county flows together to make this preserve a perfect outdoor classroom. Wear good hiking shoes, bring a sun hat, water and bug repellent. Suitable for ages 12 and up.
