Saturdays at Prairie Pines

Prairie Pines will be open to the public for free EVERY Saturday from 9am-5pm to explore its diverse 145-acres of wildlife habitat. Enjoy the simplicity of nature on the miles of trails, with a picnic in the arboretum, or conquering the kids nature ninja course. The Prairie Pines Nature Preserve Preserve trails and Nature Ninja course are open to the public on all Saturdays except major holidays. Due to current health concerns, the Welcome Center and restrooms are closed and there are no special events. Improvements to the Nature Ninja course are coming in the Fall!

Sorry no pets!
