History Hike at Camp Wa-kon-da

November 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Come explore our amazing history at Fontenelle Forest! A naturalist will guide you along our History Trail while exploring the Forest’s past, from pre-history to today. Participants will learn about how the land was shaped by glaciers, how Native Americans lived amongst the forest, and how fur traders and explorers settled in the hills. Dress for the weather, bring water, and apply sunscreen and insect repellant. Participants must pre-register for this event. This program is free for members or with daily admission for non-members.

About the organization
Founded in 1913, Fontenelle Forest is one of Nebraska’s oldest conservation organizations and one of the largest private nature centers in the nation. This federally designated 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity is a National Natural Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Sites. Fontenelle Forest owns and manages two nature centers: Fontenelle Forest Nature Center in Bellevue and Neale Woods in Omaha. The properties encompass nearly 2,000 acres of forest, prairie and wetlands along the Missouri River in the geographically significant Loess Hills. The mission of Fontenelle Forest is to provide a place where people can experience and enjoy the quiet wild of nature. We want to inspire current and future generations to care for the natural world.
