City Naturalist to lead summer nature hike | Environment
An early summer nature hike is scheduled for Sunday June 24 at 2pm, at the Hudsonville Nature Center. The free hike is led by City Naturalist, Craig Elston and is about an hour in length.
“There is much to experience as the wildflower show begins to shift from woods to fields and edges,” noted Elston. “We will look for summer wildflowers and other natural features of interest along the trails.”
The nature hike starts from the parking area at the end of New Holland Ave, East of 32nd Ave and treks through portions of the 74 acre Nature Center. The Nature Center features a variety of mature forest types, a recreated Michigan Tall-grass Prairie, and a wetland area with flowing streams.
Future nature hikes will take place on July 22, July 27, and August 19 and will cover a different topic during each hike. Maps are also available at City Hall for self-guided tours.
