Hikes & Events

Please join Mississippi Valley Conservancy outdoors for one of our many “Linked to the Land” events throughout the year and join us at our annual banquet in the autumn.

MVC offers guided nature hikes on our preserves, snowshoe outings, guided bird watching, sunset hikes, and stargazing events with big telescopes—all FREE!

Check out the Hike to Wellness program that many company and organizations are using to get their employees outdoors and active. Property Map Trails

We are also looking to offer outdoor adventure opportunities like kayaking excursions for which we may charge a small fee to cover expenses. 

MVC's annual banquet in the fall is attended by hundreds of people. We have gourmet food, a wine tasting, silent auction, and fascinating speakers like “Last River Rat” Kenny Salwey, and Bob Anderson with his falcons.
