Encouraging Biodiversity- Field day and Class


Saturday, August 3
9:00 – 12:00 pm

Join us for a hike around the Tunnelville Cliffs State Natural Area.  We’ll look at some unique natural features of the site, including a rich woodland, and a hill (goat) prairie.  This hike will be led by Dr. Melinda Knutson as a follow-up to her Conservation on Tap presentation on biodiversity of the Driftless Area.  This is your opportunity to see Driftless geology, birds, and plants and learn more about how the Driftless landscape supports biodiversity.  There is nothing like experiencing a natural area in the peak of the summer!  Other features of the site include seepages along the cliff base, waterfalls, and a wetland.  Tunnelville Cliffs is owned by the Mississippi Valley Conservancy and was designated a State Natural Area in 2006.  State natural areas protect rare or unique natural features, plant communities and their associated wildlife.The hike will happen rain or shine, so come dressed for the weather.  Be prepared for insects and stinging nettles; sturdy footwear required.  No bathroom facilities.
