Wilkie Gorge of Cross Plains National Scientific Reserve
Description of the Reserve:
The area represents a world-renowned example of the interface of glaciated and unglaciated terrain. The relationship between Johnstown Moraine and glaciated landscapes on one side of the Moraine and unglaciated bedrock landscapes on the other side is strikingly exhibited. Oak savanna, oak forests, wetlands and prairies cover the area.

What to bring:
Remember to dress according to the weather & walking limitations. Bring water. We will introduce the site and walk a few trails under most mild weather conditions. A walking stick might be useful. We will have two leaders, so we will walk in two separate groups, ensuring that we have a good experience.
