Blackhawk Wildlife Area, Jackson County

Saturday, December 12, 2020

Get the ultimate in local and sustainable Christmas trees! The public is welcome to select a cedar tree from our prairie to grace their home this year. Although cedar trees are native, they can quickly shade out prairie species. Conservation staff will be available to cut down the tree and help load it on Saturday, December 12 at Black Hawk Wildlife area starting at 9 AM. Registration is required. Interested parties can contact Jackson County Conservation to indicate what time they will be arriving by calling 563-652-3783 or emailing jacksonccb@jacksonccb.com.  The trees are free; donations are welcome and will support the Hurstville Interpretive Center Solar Project. The Hurstville Fishing Pond is located 1 mile north of Maquoketa on the west side of Highway 61. Blackhawk Wildlife Area is located west of Maquoketa at the north end of 138th Avenue.
