If you or any of your friends are interested in becoming a "Master Naturalist", please let me know. I'm hoping that we can generate enough interest to warrant a course offering in central Iowa. It's a 40-hour course that will teach you the fundamentals of nature so that you can give back to your community by educating youth and adults or if you just want to expand your own knowledge about all the wonders of nature. Here's some additional information. There's also a FB page, "Iowa Master Naturalists"

Great day to be outside! We chatted with a Conservation gal that was placing geocache cards!
Did my 5k today still wanted to do it at Annette Nature Center. So why not, had a ton of sun and some good muddy trails. It felt good!

October 2019 We found a training controller to a dog collar in the parking area of Swallow Bend, the north parking. We are trying to find the owner. If readers can, please share this with anyone who maybe runs their dogs there, we'd really like to get it back to them. (I know this is the Annett Nature Center, but Swallow Bends page only has a couple of dozen followers)
If you get an opportunity to participate in a Forest Therapy Walk I highly encourage it!
Thank you for the stand up paddle boarding lesson today & all the laughs— you’re amazing!!!
Visited Iowa from Michigan and decided to stick around an extra day to complete your lovely Geocaching tree adventure. Luckily we finished before the ANC closed so we could get the final cache coordinates and finisher coin! Thanks for the tour of Warren County! We LOVED the suspension bridge and campgrounds at Grant Park :) We'll definitely be back another year to complete another series!
