The Tapteal Greenway plans guided hikes of the Amon Creek Natural Preserve on May 16 in south Richland.
Stations along the trail will include short presentations about plants, animals, birds, geology and the future of the Amon Basin. The preserve is home to jackrabbits, coyotes, beavers and muskrats, plus resident and migratory bird species.
Tours will leave Claybell Park at 599 Broadmoor St. for the adjacent preserve starting at 9 a.m. and continuing until the the last tour starts at 10 a.m.
Each hike will last about 21/2 hours and will include both shrub steppe and wetland habitat. Children are welcome if they have the stamina for the hike. Dogs should be left at home.
