---- — OTTUMWA — Come visit the Rain Forest at Pioneer Ridge Nature Area this fall. The annual Halloween Hikes are back, and some creatures have travelled from the rain forest to teach you about their home.
Hikers will take a 1/2-mile hike on a paved trail to meet eight characters from the rain forest. You will meet a scientist, spider monkeys, poison dart frogs and many more. Hikes will take place every 10 minutes from 6-8 pm.
Pre-registration is requested, but walk-ins are welcome and will be accommodated as possible. The cost is only $3 per person. Register beginning Oct. 1 by calling Amy at 641-684-8906 or by emailing PioneerRidgeHike@hotmail.com.
Don’t forget about the treats and activities after the hike. All ages and groups are welcome to join in this non-scary and educational event.
