OTTUMWA-Winter break is about to begin for many area students. By next week, some of you will be going completely stir crazy. Wapello County Conservation Board would like to offer you the opportunity to get out of the house for an afternoon and enjoy a little outdoor exploration and more. The Wapello County Conservation Board will be offering Winter Camp on Thursday, December 29 beginning at 1:00 PM. They will spend a little time outdoors discovering winter survival techniques and homes of winter residents. Then everyone will return to the nature center to warm up by the fire with cookies, hot chocolate, and a movie.
This is a camp for all ages so bring the entire family out. There is no cost for this event, but registration is requested by Tuesday, December 27 at 4:30 PM to ensure treats are available for all participants. Call 641-682-3091 to register. Camp will take place at Pioneer Ridge Nature Area.
Just a reminder that the nature center will be closed Friday, December 23 through Monday, December 26. If you call during this time, leave a message at extension 102.
