Rock County Conservationists plan hikes in June

Print Article

MILTON - Rock County Conservationists have two hikes planned in June at Fair Meadows State Natural Area near Milton. Fair Meadows is a 300-acre, privately owned state natural area with wide, easily hiked trails that wind through prairies, oak woodlands, ponds and wetlands. Access to the public is limited only to guided hikes like this.

There will be a Night Nature Hike from 9-11 p.m. on Friday. Hikers should meet at 8:45 p.m. at the Milton Public Library parking lot to caravan to Fair Meadows. During the hike, participants will see bats and fireflies, and hear the calls of coyotes, owls, frogs, toads and night birds.

The following morning from 7-9 a.m. on Saturday, there will be a Birdwatching/Wildlife Hike, also at Fair Meadows. Attendees should meet at the Milton Public Library at 6:45 a.m. During this early morning hike, wildflowers and wildlife will be observed with an emphasis on bird-watching.

Participants should be prepared for mosquitoes and some damp trails. During the day hike, a hat or cap is essential. All programs are free and open to the public. In the case of rain, the hikes will be rescheduled for the following day at the same time. Donations are appreciated. For more information, call Dave Bendlin at 608-868-3824.
