Wapello County Conservation Board Announces Upcoming Events

OTTUMWA-Toddler Camp – Friday, January 19, 2018

Calling all 3 and 4 year old children (and their parents) with cabin fever! Bring your preschooler to Pioneer Ridge Nature Center for a morning of exploring snow and ice. We will read a book about snow, make a snow craft, and go out into the snow of course (if there is snow). About an hour of learning is a great reason to get out of the house this time of year. Register by January 16 at 4:00 pm.  Camp begins at 10:00 AM.  Children must be accompanied by an adult, and the cost is $5 per child.


Basket Making Class – Saturday, February 17, 2018

Would you like to weave your very own tote basket? This is your chance. The conservation board will host a basket making class for only $25. That price covers all materials, instruction, and lunch. Class will begin at 9:00 AM.  Pre-registration is required by January 26 so materials can be ordered for all participants. There is a minimum of 5 and maximum of 15 participants so register early.
