A Winter Well-Spent

By Melanie Louis on April 18, 2018 in Blog

INHF volunteers had a busy winter and accomplished a lot of work, despite the variable weather. From winter invasive brush work days to guided hikes through an oak savanna, I had the chance to interact with new and familiar volunteers throughout the state. Below are a few of my favorite shots from the season.

Whether our volunteers were working in single digit temperatures or conquering multi-flora rose, they always left with a smile on their face and a belly full of hot chocolate. INHF volunteers continue to amaze me with their dedication and commitment to helping accomplish our mission: to protect and restore Iowa’s land, water and wildlife.

Now, spring is finally here and so are additional opportunities to get outdoors! Check out upcoming events here. I can't wait to see what we accomplish together!
