Great Race Against Shrubs and Shade
Join Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and the Nature Conservancy in Iowa in the Loess Hills for one of the largest land restoration days in the state. Together, we'll remove cedars to help keep the Loess Hills hillside prairies healthy and thriving. Make a weekend of it and stay for the annual Loess Hills Prairie Seminar, an annual event aimed at connecting people with this unique landscape.
Please note: This event is not for the faint of heart. The terrain is steep and uneven, and the work is intense.
