MASON CITY – The Cerro Gordo County Conservation Board and Lime Creek Nature Center Foundation are sponsoring their twenty-sixth annual Halloween Hike on Thursday, October 25 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Lime Creek Nature Center. The theme is “Predators – They’re Part of the Picture!”
Groups of hikers will be led through the trails of Lime Creek on a 40-minute hike, encountering various creatures along the way. The hike will not be scary, but will be a fun and educational experience for the whole family. A majority of the hike will be held on the hard-surface Easy Access Trail, but the final segment will occur on a trail inaccessible to wheelchairs. Refreshments will be served following the hike.
Children up to 10 years old are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes and are welcome to participate in a costume contest that will be held in conjunction with the hike.
Reservations are required. Members of the Lime Creek Nature Center can make reservations starting Monday, October 15, at 8 a.m. Non-member registrations will be taken starting Tuesday, October 16, at 8 a.m. Call 423-5309 to make reservations or for more information.
Registration will be limited to a maximum of ten people per caller. Every six children at the hike must be accompanied by at least one adult. The cost is $3.00 per person for all ages. Registrants will be required to pay for unannounced no-shows.
