Chronicles From the Trail

December 7, 2019
Hitchcock Nature Center

Join us for an informative local history program with local experts, Glenn Pollock and Larry Grill, as they recount the 1820 expedition of Steven Watts Kearny and Andrew Talcott through Iowa. In 1820, 32 people, eight mules, and seven horses traveled from Fort Atkinson to what is now Minneapolis, Minnesota. This presentation will trace their journey through Iowa using the journal writings of Kearny and Talcott. Hear stories of survival and discovery, and learn more about the plant and animal species they encountered during their travels.

The cost for this event is $3 per person and includes admission to the park, all programming, and refreshments. Pre-registration is requested as refreshments will be served. This program is presented as part of our adult education programming; we ask that participants be age 12 and over, please.
