CADIZ, Ky. – (Jan. 27, 2017) — Lake Barkley State Resort Park has Second Saturday hikes scheduled for February and March that will focus on trees and birds.

Join a naturalist at Lake Barkley State Resort Park on Feb. 11 for the second hike in the monthly hiking series. The focus of February’s hike will be winter tree identification. The hike will teach participants how to identify trees at the most difficult time of year to do so – when there are no leaves!

The March 11 hike will teach participants about the bird species of western Kentucky and how to identify them using field guides.

Both hikes start at 10 a.m. (CST) and will depart from the lobby of the lodge. No reservations are necessary to participate in Second Saturday Hikes. Please dress for the weather. Sturdy, comfortable footwear is strongly suggested.

Families and individuals can enjoy other entertainment and lodging opportunities at the park. Lake Barkley State Resort Park is the largest state resort park in Kentucky and features a lodge, cottages, the Windows on the Water Restaurant, a seasonal campground, 18-hole golf course, fitness center with indoor pool, marina, fishing, tennis courts, hiking trails, gift shop, and recreational and nature programming.

The park is located at 3500 State Park Road in Cadiz. From I-24, take the Highway 68 exit west toward Cadiz.
