Surly at Snyder

Please note: This event is now full! We look forward to seeing everyone on the prairie on Saturday. Didn't snag a spot in time? View other upcoming volunteer opportunities.

Join Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation and Surly Gives a Damn - the public-spirited side of Surly Brewing Co. - for a Saturday of brush cutting, brews and giving back at Snyder Heritage Farm! 

We'll spend the morning restoring the prairie. After, we'll grab a Surly beer  - compliments of the brewery - at Old Chicago Ankeny to toast to our hard work. No experience necessary!
