National Trails Day Celebration @ Lakeside Nature Center

Celebrating National Trails Day
Saturday, June 5
4701 East Gregory Boulevard
“Do you know we have a three mile woodland trail right in the heart of Kansas City? Yes, at Lakeside Nature Center you can take an extended hike through not only a woodland area but also witness a savannah and a marsh habitat!
One of the events for Trails Day is to help with maintaining our trails and anyone can help!
Beginning at 8:30 in the morning, volunteers will head out to parts of our upper and lower trails for honeysuckle removal and trail repair. We will talk about clearing the honeysuckle from the Bethany limestone bluff area so that we can enjoy the unique formations that exist right under our feet.
So, please spend a couple of hours with us and you will be rewarded with a view of some wonderful native stone artwork! Please dress appropriately for the weather and the terrain! Don’t forget your refillable water bottle, your favorite gardening gloves and tools.
From 10:00-2:00, Friends of Lakeside Nature Center Volunteers will be in the center teaching visitors about Prairie, Forest, and Marsh habitats.
Want to get out and enjoy the trails? Join us for special Hike with a Naturalist at 11:00 and 1:00.”
