COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site will host a nature walk through its fields, marshes and woods.

Guides will lead the free hike Saturday starting at 9:30 a.m. at the Interpretive Center. It's expected to conclude around 1 p.m. and will be canceled if there's rain at the start time.
