Hannibal Parks & Recreation will offer two night hikes in August, to give people a chance to enjoy summer in Sodalis Nature Preserve.
The August Night Hikes will be:
The full program lasts about two hours and follows a 2-mile paved trail. Participants are welcome to stay with the group or return to the parking lot on their own. Activities include seasonal observations, sensory activities and the telling of the creation of Sodalis Nature Preserve.
There will be a strict limit of 20 participants and reservations must be made by calling Hannibal Parks & Recreation at 221-0154 or by emailing email@example.com.
Nature programs and hikes are led by Gale Rublee, a nationally certified interpreter guide with more than 25 years of experience in outdoor education. Rublee is a founding member of the Hannibal area Mississippi Hills chapter of Missouri Master Naturalists and Master Naturalist volunteers often assist with HPR programs. Recently, Hannibal Parks & Recreation produced online “Nature Moments with Gale” to encourage Hannibal residents to get outside for a dose of Vitamin “N” for Nature. These videos are available on the Hannibal Parks & Recreation Facebook page or at www.hannibalparks.org.
