This 41 acre preserve features 32 ancient burial mounds. The preserve also harbors a mature forest containing numerous wildflowers and a small remnant of native blufftop prairie. A trail up the 200-foot steep bluff continues at the top to circle around the Indian Mounds that are protected by fencing. We need your help removing unwanted woody vegetation from this unique area to preserve the mounds.
No experience necessary and all equipment provided!
What to Wear:
Wear long pants and sturdy, close-toed shoes for working on uneven terrain in heavily vegetated areas on restoration workdays.
