Prairie Saunter

Becker East Prairie Saunter

Saturday, July 16th, 10 am-12 pm

Becker East Wildlife Area

Come and join the Clayton County Conservation Board and the Iowa Prairie Network for a saunter on the reconstructed prairie at the Becker East Wildlife Area! We’ll explore the new cast of plant characters, search for the endangered rusty patched bumblebee, and discuss the US Fish & Wildlife Service’s interest in the site as well as the reconstruction process. The wildlife area has no developed trails, so participants should come with sturdy shoes, long pants, and water for a moderate hike. The Becker East Wildlife Area is approximately 7 miles south of Guttenberg, across Hwy 52 from Millville. Please call the Osborne Nature Center at 563-245-1516 for more information. All programs and events are listed on our website and Facebook page.

The Osborne Center is located on Highway 13, ten miles north of Strawberry Point or five miles south of Elkader. The center is open from 8:00am to 4:00pm, Monday-Saturday and 12:00pm-4:00pm Sunday.
