In honor of the Dump Busters, whose hard work and perseverance made Hitchcock Nature Center possible, we are inviting the public to come out and bust some litter. Join us at the park on Saturday, April 24th from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. & help us clean-up the park.
Join us at Hitchcock Nature Center between 9:00 a.m. & 1:00 p.m. on April 24th, check in to receive your trash collection materials then head out into the park for some litter pickup action. Participants collecting trash are admitted to the park for free & will be entered into a drawing to win a free stay in one of Hitchcock Nature Center's camping cabins.
This event is open to participants of all ages & there is no fee or pre-registration. Participants are asked to bring their own gloves, bags, & other items that may help with their clean up efforts. Gloves and bags will also be available at check in.
Please note, this event will include travel over uneven surfaces but distance & pacing is entirely up to each participant. Strollers are not recommended if you plan to take to the trails in search of trash to collect. Please dress for the weather. Please wear closed toe shoes & bring along water, sunblock, & insect repellent to make your visit more enjoyable.
Due to COVID-19 the format of this program has been adjusted.
Well behaved dogs may accompany their owners but they must be leashed at all times & owners must pick up and carry out their pet waste.
Weather permitting, please meet at the Loess Hills Lodge.
