Around Iowa: Breakfast with the Birds & Basket Making

By Taylor on January 10, 2013 in Blog

To keep all of our dedicated nature lovers better informed about the events occurring in their communities each weekend, we’ve decided to start a new, weekly post on the INHF blog. Check back every Thursday for unique conservation-minded events to help keep your weekends exciting!

Breakfast with the Birds

Meet at the Jefferson County Park Nature Center, southwest of Fairfield off Libertyville Road, at 8 a.m. on Saturday, January 12 to enjoy the winter weather and search the skies for birds – specifically woodpeckers.

Come ready for a light breakfast and a presentation about the adaptability of Iowa’s diverse woodpecker species!

Basket Making for Beginners: Melon Basket

Looking for a great Sunday afternoon activity? Join Jefferson County Conservation from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 13th and learn how to weave a beautiful basket.

The course costs $15 per person and no prior experience in basket weaving is necessary. Space is limited though so pre-registration is required. Pre-register by email or call (641) 472-4421.
