In light of recent events, this event has been postponed until further notice. We are disappointed, but know it is the right decision, and are committed to doing out part to slow the spread of COVID-19. We hope you will be able to join us for the rescheduled date TBD. Thank you for your understanding and support of INHF and our public lands.
Join Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, the Iowa Park Foundation and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to help kick off INHF's 2020 volunteer season and the Iowa State Parks Centennial!
We will be working at Volga River State Recreation Area to help native sand prairie plants thrive by removing invasive species. This is one of several INHF events being held at Iowa State Parks across the state this Saturday.
After working to restore sand prairie habitat, we will meet up at Heaven Boutique Winery for drinks. Everyone is welcome. Help us celebrate a great 2020 season and look ahead to a wonderful season! An RSVP is requested.
