Trail Mix Hike for National Trails Day

June 4, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm CDT


Celebrate National Trails Day with Brown Faces Green Spaces and Shirley Heinze Land Trust!

Embrace the diversity in both our environment and community with our Trail Mix Hike at Ivanhoe South Nature Preserve.

– Go nuts and create your own trail mix
– Take a guided hike to learn about the dune and swale ecosystems
– Complete a scavenger hunt and receive a National Trails Day sticker!

Ivanhoe South features a leisurely trail of 0.6 miles with beautiful wildflowers and towering oak trees. The event will start at 11:00am, with hikes will start at 11:30 and 12:30 Central Time.

We are “raisin” awareness for sustainability by encouraging participants to bring their own water bottles and to leave the trail better than they found it. To learn more about how to #RecreateResponsibly, please visit

Ivanhoe South Nature Preserve is located at 750 Colfax St, Gary, IN. We recommend carpooling as parking is limited.
We will be adding more information and partners soon, so check back for updates!

National Trails Day is the first Saturday in June. To learn more, visit
