Volunteer at Camp WaNoKi

By Taylor on June 5, 2015 in Blog


Come give back to the land for a volunteer day at Camp WaNoKi southeast of Fort Dodge on Saturday, June 27. From 9 a.m. to noon, help INHF and Webster County restore an oak savanna, a beautiful ecosystem that’s one of the rarest in the U.S. We’ll work to remove invasive woody plants that surround some larger oak trees.

Camp WaNoKi—a Native American abbreviation for beautiful land and scenery—boasts nearly 80 acres of beautiful woodland along the Des Moines River, providing habitat for neotropical migrant birds and many woodland mammal species.

Come for the views and the people you might meet along the way, and stay for a social lunch hour afterward.

Bring a water bottle and make sure to dress for the weather. Closed-toe shoes are recommended, and boots are preferred. Lunch, snacks and water will be provided. All ages welcome!

RSVP to INHF Volunteer Coordinator Mary Runkel at mrunkel@inhf.org or 515-288-1846.
