Mission: The Hitchcock Nature Center exists to develop and foster appreciation and understanding of the Loess Hills as a globally significant landform through land management, environmental education and low-impact recreation.
Hitchcock Nature Center, acquired by Pottawattamie County in 1991, harbors some of the largest remaining prairie remnants in Iowa and provides refuge for plants and animals found nowhere else in the state. Hitchcock's 1,268 acres are open every day of the year for hiking, picnicking, bird watching, snow sledding, star gazing or simply enjoying nature.
Come visit Hitchcock Nature Center. Stay for the day or spend the night and enjoy a variety of outdoor activities.
