Around Iowa: Evening Prairie Burn & Mud Hike

By Taylor on March 21, 2013 in Blog

Evening Prairie Burn – Thursday, March 28 at 7:30 p.m.

Join the Warren County Conservation Board at Annett Nature Center and light up the night sky with an evening prairie burn. Learn about why these types of burns are important to prairie ecosystems and experience this conservation technique firsthand.

Can’t make it to the prairie? The video above was taken during a similar evening prairie burn two years ago. This program may be postponed due to weather conditions. Call (515) 961-6169 for updates.

Mud Hike – Friday, March 22 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Iowa in March is always a bit of a mystery as far as weather is concerned. From snow to ceaseless rain to bone-dry conditions, Iowans have to be prepared for anything.

So strap on your best hiking boots and join Polk County Conservation at Thomas Mitchell Park for the spring’s first mud hike. No matter what the weather, meet near the pond parking lot for a morning of exploring Iowa’s natural beauty!
