CLINTON — The Soaring Eagle Nature Center of Clinton will be celebrating the grand reopening of their trail system on May 16.

The public is invited to explore the trails and enjoy a light lunch. The volunteer board will be on hand serving complimentary hot dogs, chips and lemonade from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. A naturalist from Clinton County will also be available to answer questions about the plant and animal life on the center grounds. Pets are welcome on a leash.

Soaring Eagle Nature Center sits on 40 acres and includes the Nature Barn, one-room schoolhouse, Prairie Pastures Dog Park and the hiking trails that run through both woodland and tall-grass prairie areas.

“We couldn't be more excited about this grand reopening of the trails. We are so thankful for the help of the great volunteer groups from Alliant Energy and Prince of Peace School,” stated Board President Wendy Krajnovich. “With their help we are able to preserve this terrific nature space for our community to enjoy year-round with hiking in warmer weather and cross-country skiing in the winter months.”
