Dodge Hiking Challenge

June–October 2024

There’s lots to see at Dodge Nature Center in every season. Most folks are familiar with the Main Property, but did you know Dodge has three other properties in the greater Twin Cities? Each property holds a unique environment with thriving native wildlife and plants, waiting to be explored by you!

This June–October, we challenge you to visit and explore all four Dodge Nature Center properties.

Join the Dodge Hiking Challenge to:

  • Discover different biomes across Dodge: old growth forests, flourishing wetlands, restored prairies, and more.
  • Experience something new in nature: view wildlife and plants, find rest and relaxation, or discover enjoyment in hiking.
  • Get a super cool, one-of-a-kind sticker! It looks great on water bottles, car bumpers, and more.

How it works


  1. Plan your visits to all four Dodge Nature Center properties.
  2. During your visits, snap a photo at each property. Selfies, wildlife shots, or something neat in nature are all great!
