OWLS: Hamilton Prairie Walk

Hurstville Interpretive Center, Jackson County

Thursday, August 18, 2022

Join Dubuque, Jackson, and Jones County Conservation OWLS group as we explore the natural beauty of Hamilton prairie.

On Thursday August 18 at 6:00 pm we will explore Ray Hamilton’s prairie located at the corner of Codfish Hollow Rd. and 288th Ave Maquoketa IA. Through a guided prairie hike we look for and learn about native prairie plants. Hamilton’s prairie has been managed as a biological preserve for the past 35 years and is a shining example of a privately owned prairie. With a mixture of remnant and restored prairie Hamilton’s prairie will entrance plant lovers and give glimpse into Iowa’s natural history. We will visit Hamilton’s prairie throughout the growing season. Other prairie walk dates will be September 22. 

OWLS (Older, Wiser, Livelier Souls) programs are coordinated between Dubuque, Jackson & Jones County Conservation Departments. All OWLS events are open to any adult interested in learning more about nature and the environment with other adults.
