Join the Iowa Native Plant Society for a Plant and Insect Hike at Red Oak Prairie, a private hill prarie remnant just north of Harpers Ferry. The hike will be led by MJ Hatfield.
Sturdy shoes are a must, perhaps also a walking stick, on this somewhat steep hill prairie. e sure to bring your binoculars. Attendees might want to observe ducks, geese and birds, as the south portion of Red Oak Road is adjacent to the Mississippi River. We will be looking for insects, too. There is an option to join MJ after the hike. .
Red Oak Prairie is located north of Harpers Ferry at 1180 Red Oak Road (no 911 marker, but across the road from 1179 Red Oak Road) which is just off the Great River Road. Parking will be at the edge of Red Oak Road but the road is narrow so please, leave room for other vehicles when you park.
