Hitchcock Nature Center

While Lewis and Clark never passed directly through Loess Hills, where the Hitchcock Nature Center is located, it is nevertheless a sight not to be missed. Loess Hills itself held a significant meaning to the expedition of Lewis and Clark as it was not too far from Council Bluffs, Iowa. If the name sounds familiar, it is because it was the meeting point of the Lewis and Clark expedition party and the Otoe tribe.

Today, the Hitchcock Nature Center is perfect for the outdoor recreation enthusiast as it offers a plethora of opportunities for its visitors. The park boasts an archery range, hawk watching, geocaching, earthcaching, hunting, seasonal activities, a playground for children, snowshoe rentals, trails for hiking, and adventure packs. The facility also offers a multitude of various campsites for the visitors who wish to extend their stay.
