To promote invasive and/or rare plant monitoring, the Kickapoo Valley Reserve is offering five plant identification hikes over the course of the summer. For each date, the hike will meet at the south gate of Old Hwy 131 Trail at 9 am and will walk north on Old 131, observing and identifying plants.
