Free guided walk to explore the life on the prairie and the sky above at night offered by Mississippi Valley Conservancy

Enjoy an evening outdoors for a guided walk to discover the planets, stars, and galaxies of the late summer’s evening sky on the hilltop trail at the Tunnelville Cliffs nature preserve in Vernon County. This easy walk on a relatively flat trail will include observation of night life on the prairie and in the sky.


Bring curiosity and willingness to explore the quiet and dark of night, red flashlight (if you don’t have one, red film will be provided for use with your regular flashlight), binoculars (optional and some extras will be available), and insect repellent (optional). Long pants and closed-toed shoes are recommended. Masks and social distancing will be required. Feel free to bring a folding chair or a blanket to prevent neck strain and enjoy the heavens above.

ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED for this FREE event by October 12 at https://www.mississippivalleyconservancy.org/events.
