The next Second Saturday guided hike at Lake Barkley State Resort Park on May 14 will focus on the study of the changing ecosystem.
The hike is scheduled for 10 a.m. and will start at the lobby of the park lodge. No reservations are necessary. Sturdy, comfortable footwear is strongly suggested.
“From our waterways to our weather patterns, and from our plant and animal communities to the smiling faces at our favorite park, change is inevitable,” park naturalist David Kem said. “This hike will focus on forest succession, the study of our changing ecosystem. By identifying plants and animals, as well as uncovering clues to our park’s past, participants will learn to ‘read’ the forest around them.”
Families and individuals can enjoy other entertainment and lodging opportunities at the park. Lake Barkley State Resort Park is the largest state resort park in Kentucky and features a lodge, cottages, the Windows on the Water Restaurant, a seasonal campground, 18-hole golf course, fitness center with indoor pool, marina, fishing, tennis courts, hiking trails, gift shop, and recreational and nature programming. The park is located at 3500 State Park Road in Cadiz. From I-24, take the Highway 68 exit west toward Cadiz.
