    April is a fantastic time to be outdoors in Iowa, and is also a great time to look for birds!  Join us to welcome back migrating birds on a fun spring morning at Lost Island Huston Park with Palo Alto County Conservation Board!  As we hike through woodlands, wetlands, and grasslands around the park, we'll learn about various aspects of bird migration and which birds we should expect to be arriving back in Iowa.  This trip is free but advanced registration is required.

    During the peak of the nesting season in Iowa, the woods are alive with bird song!  Join us for a live concert (perhaps not your typical concert, but there will be music :) ) at Lime Creek Nature Area on this early summer morning.  We'll learn the songs of some common Iowa nesting species and enjoy a hike through this fantastic area managed by Cerro Gordo County Conservation Board.  Be sure to bring your listening ears!  This trip is free but advanced registration is required.
