Motor Mill Hike
August 27, 2021
Come join naturalist & resource manager Kenny Slocum for a hike at the Motor Mill Historic Site focused on the habitat restoration projects
surrounding the old town of Motor on Friday, August 27th at 5 pm. The site has received a lot of attention from the CCCB’s ecological restoration program, with a renewed focus in recent years on returning fire to the oak woodland and the Grau Memorial Savanna. This walk will discuss the history and ongoing management of the restored prairies and remnant oak savannas gracing this jewel of the Clayton County Park system. Reservations required. Participants should come prepared for roughly two miles of hiking; long pants and water are recommended. For more information, call 245-1516 or visit ClaytonCountyConservation.org. Motor Mill is approximately ten minutes southeast of Elkader, on the banks of the Turkey River along Galaxy Road.
