Night Hike this coming Saturday June 20th!

Join us for our first "stretched out" night hike of the summer ~ easy to stay safely distanced and enjoy this fun opportunity to be on the property after dark so don't miss out!

We will meet at Valley View's southern entrance behind Pattison Elementary. The hike is approximately 2 miles of winding trails through both forest and field. Our lead hiker will start at 8pm and we will have staggered starts until 8:30pm.

We will be at the front and back of the line, in between you can hike at your own pace with a friend or your family.  BYOB, snacks and bug spray.  Hope to see you Saturday!

Celebrate the beginning of autumn with a Run for the Bottoms 

Saturday, October 5th!  The Valley View property was affectionately nicknamed "the bottoms" many years ago.  In 2004, we created the Run for the Bottoms to help raise money to preserve the property and we decided to reintroduce the race in 2018. Run the new 5K or *single loop 10K and enjoy the post-race cookout at the barns. A great way to support Valley View and explore the trails with family and friends!

If you have been on the trails recently you have probably seen a few areas that our land management team has been clearing. The invasive trees and plants have taken over a number of our fields that we are working to reclaim. In particular, the red cedars and honeysuckle spread rapidly and eventually choke out all the native plants and grasses.

Returning the property to quality prairie and forest will greatly improve the animal habitat and help maintain a balanced ecosystem including varied native plants and animal species.

Winning the battle takes both manual and mechanical work. Our board chair, Chris Habel, recently added a couple bobcat attachments to his ever expanding tool collection. Now we are able to make considerable progress in a short amount of time. There are some areas that we hit hard and need to be cleaned up, but please know our volunteers are working diligently and as quickly as weather permits.

The more helping hands the more progress we can make! If you have some time t...
