Flooding along the Mississippi River and its tributaries in Hannibal has forced Hannibal Parks & Recreation to relocate the April 12 "Night Hike" to Riverview Park. The Night Hikes typically are in Sodalis Nature Preserve but due to high water from Bear Creek, the Sodalis Trail is unavailable.

Participants in the Night Hike will learn about the history of Riverview Park along with its wildlife, trees and plants. The hike will be on paved paths, about 2 miles. The Night Hike will begin at 7 p.m. at Shelter No. 1 near the playground.

Nature Educator Gale Rublee will lead the hike. She has previously been a naturalist and teacher at Shaw Nature Reserve in St. Louis and has been a storyteller and actor.

The Night Hike is free but reservations must be made by calling Hannibal Parks & Recreation at 573-221-0154 or emailing mlrichards@hannibal-mo.gov
