  Wickiup Hill, Linn County Conservation
  www.linncountyparks.com
The vision of the Linn County Conservation Department is to improve community through people, parks, trails and open space. This is achieved in many ways - one of which is the Wickiup Hill Learning Center.

Opening in 2002, the Wickiup Hill Learning Center has hosted hundreds of educational, historical and cultural events - providing one-of-a-kind learning experiences to tens of thousands of people. Hundreds of acres surrounding the Center are rich in archaeological history - providing many "hands-on" opportunities for school groups and seniors alike to learn of the Native American culture, life styles the impact that the environment has on life today. Highlights of the Center include a Hall of Habitats, full-size wickiup replica, Native American exhibits featuring life-size figures, archaeology displays, a bird-viewing area, and live reptile/amphibian exhibits. Additionally, miles of recreational/educational trails meander through wetlands, prairie, savanna and woodland ecosystems surrounding the Center.
