Interested in bringing a group to Wickiup Hill Learning Center?
We love kids (of all ages) to experience nature! However, Wickiup Hill Learning Center is a busy place, especially in the summer, with scheduled filed trips and summer camps happening almost every day.
Wickiup Hill is a "carry in, carry out" facility. Please bring a trash bag with you to bring your garbage back with you.
All wildlife are protected by law. No animal should be moved, harassed or removed from the property. Please observe at an appropriate distance.
Trails are marked and many have educational signage along the way. Maps are also available inside.
Please contact the Wickiup Hill Conservation Education Team at 319-892-6485 to plan your Self Guided Field Trip indoors and/or outdoors. All groups of 10 or more need to schedule their visit in advance to avoid conflicts with other large groups and events.
To better accommodate groups of 10 or more guests we ask that you contact the Wickiup Hill Conservation Education Team to plan your Self-Guided Field Trip indoors and/or outdoors. All groups of 10 or more will need to schedule their visit in advance, so we can be sure there are no conflicts with other large groups and events
