Have a "howling" good time at Hitchcock Nature Center during our annual Hitchcock Haunted Hollow treasure hunt! This all-ages self-guided adventure is the perfect way to get outdoors, learn something new about the natural world, and explore autumn in Iowa's Loess Hills.

Swing by the Loess Hills Lodge between 11:00 and 2:00 p.m. to grab your spooky trail map with clues, then hit the trails to see if you can find the answers and return victorious. Don't forget to swing back by the lodge before it closes to grab your prize when you're done!

Costumes are welcome!
