Upcoming Events

We ask participants to register for Clifftop-sponsored events so that we may contact you should weather or other circumstances cause a cancellation or postponement, and, in the case of seminars and workshops, so that we are able to have sufficient materials prepared for you. Registration information and deadlines are included with event descriptions.

Please save the following dates and then check back with us for detailed program and field trip information for more events!

Saturdays July 15, August 19 and September 16, 9:00 a.m. Summer Prairie Walks, led by Clifftop Board member and SWIC Biology Instructor, Laura Schaefer, at Paul Wightman Subterranean Nature Preserve, 3325 G Road, Fults. Join Laura for a 1 mile walking tour of the prairie. The walk will take place along the ADA accessible trail. Laura will help participants identify the native prairie plants along the trail, teach about plant adaptations and prairie ecology. Meet at the pavilion. Dress for the weather and bring a drink to help stay cool. As an added perk, participants in the September 16 walk will be allowed to collect native seeds to take home! No reservations necessary.

Due to the ongoing drought, this event has been cancelled. Saturday, July 22, 10:00 a.m. Laura’s Native Garden Tour, 300 West Harrison Street, Millstadt. Visit what was once three city lots turned into a native plant paradise filled with beautiful flowers and home to many species of native bees and other pollinators. Learn how you can do the same. No reservations necessary.

Saturday, August 12, 8:00 p.m. until ???. Meteor Shower Viewing, Paul Wightman Subterranean Nature Preserve, 3325 G Road, Fults. Lots of dark sky over PWSNP provides wonderful conditions for stargazing and a chance to glimpse a meteor. Our nighttime outing is set during the Perseid Meteor Shower. Hosts for this event are Dr. Michael J. Krawczynski, assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences and Dr. Ryan Ogliore, assistant professor in the Department of Physics, both at Washington University, St. Louis. We invite you to come and spend a relaxing summer evening at PWSNP. Participants will not be expected to hike, but should plan to bring a lawn chair. This event is free and open to the public. No reservations necessary. However, this field trip is very weather dependent. Updates on the event will be posted on our Facebook page.

Saturday, September 23, 3:00 until 6:00 pm, Live Music, Paul Wightman Subterranean Nature Preserve, 3325 G Road, Fults. Join us as the Deer Hill Band entertains with their musical stylings in the pavilion. Open to the public, no reservations required.

Other events will be posted when details are available.

Except when noted, all programs and field trips are free and open to the public.
