Experience Horseshoe Mound ~ A Virtual Tour

JDCF was Live from the top of Horseshoe Mound recently for a virtual tour of some of the sights and sounds that can be seen and heard at the preserve. This broadcast replaced our popular, in-person walking tour scheduled for June that was cancelled due to Covid-19. After watching this video, we are certain that you will grab the family and head on out to see the preserve for yourself! Horseshoe Mound Preserve is located at 1679 N Blackjack Rd, Galena, IL. It is open daily dawn to dusk, free of charge to the public. Dogs on leashes welcome.
