The Harbor Country Hikers, led by Park Manager Alex Schrader, will be exploring the trails of Harbert Road Preserve. Migration season and winter is upon us so it's a good time to review how we can make a difference for birds and other wildlife to survive. Learn how you can promote native vegetation and enhance rather than stress your local environment.
This out-of-the-way 90-acre preserve has wide and inviting wetland, prairie and woodland trails. A shaded picnic area, shelter, and scenic benches. You’ll find nesting habitats for birds of all types.
HCH recently purchased an All-Terrain Rollator which may be reserved for use on our hikes. Reservations are made by Emailing firstname.lastname@example.org on a first-come first-served basis. This will be a good hike to try our rollator.
Wear long pants (preferably tucked-in), a sun hat, sturdy shoes or boots and insect repellent and bring plenty of water. Depending on the weather, there may be some muddy areas. HCH hikers observe federal and state guidelines so mask wearing is optional.
