Discover the heart-warming tales of Hickory Knolls from Harley the hawk on a short hike through the natural area as he takes his friend, Greta the Grasshopper, on an exciting adventure.
Harley’s family has lived in the Fox Valley area for generations, and he has some great insight as to how the land and environment have changed over the years.
The walk begins on the trail across the road, west of the garden plots. Look for the Andrini Trail sign to find the start. The first story board is down the path. The entire story walk is an estimated 3/4-mile. Inner loop story walk is about 1/2-mile. Dress appropriately for the weather.
It’s best to read the story on site to acquire an actual sense and feel of the adventure while outside with all the elements, but for those who wish to view it online, click on the storyboard image.
