Missing out on this year's Evening Prairie walks? Sign up to receive some information for self-led exploration!
A flyer of what's blooming in Story County prairies will be sent out every 2-3 weeks based on the amount of new blooms to be found. We'll also include the park or trail where the blooms were seen so you have a place to get started, but there are MANY prairie areas across the county where you might be able to find these plants!

Here is a chance for families to (safely) gather and allow their kids to play freely with other kids outdoors. Let the imagination, discoveries, and friendships unfold! Families are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner and continue the fun at the Nature Playscape after playtime. Adults must remain present. Activities are most appropriate for ages 5 and up, but all are welcome.
Bring your water shoes and get ready to get wet and muddy! A naturalist will hand out scooping equipment and we will head to the pond to catch frogs, tadpoles, snails, and other fascinating pond creatures. Participants should wear closed-toe shoes and clothes that can get wet and muddy.
