Join Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, City of Marion Parks & Recreation and Trees Forever for a winter walk and workday in the woods.
We'll kick the day off with a guided walk through the Faulkes Heritage Woods, a 100-acre woodland winding along Indian Creek. After, we'll work together to clear Japanese barberry - an invasive species - to help native plants thrive. We'll head to QDogs BBQ after the event to grab a bite and toast to a morning well-spent. An RSVP is requested.
No experience necessary. Families welcome. Rain date: Saturday, Feb. 9.
About Faulkes Heritage Woods
Located on the Cedar Rapids and Marion border, Faulkes Heritage Woods is an outdoor oasis in one of Iowa's most populous counties, featuring a 1.5 mile walking trail and high-quality wildlife habitat. The land is permanently protected by a conservation easement donated to INHF by sisters Alice Smith and Elizabeth Barry and their nieces, Nancy Thompson and Cynthia Thompson. It is named in honor of Alice Faulkes, the grandmother and great-grandmother of the four women. Now part of the Marion parks system, Faulkes Heritage Woods is owned and managed by the City of Marion.
