Bonnie & Clyde Run/Walk

We want to inform all registered participants that the Bonnie & Clyde 5 mile walk/run is cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 virus. We made this decision to ensure the safety of all registered participants, our community, and yours. In the next few weeks we will be mailing out refunds for the entry fee (this does not include the service fee). We wish you well and hope to see you next year.

UPCOMING EVENT: Historical Village Quilt Walk this Saturday afternoon, 12-4pm.

Are you planning to attend the Historical Village Quilt Walk this Saturday afternoon? We currently have 43 quilts, several coverlets and lap robes, and 20+ doll quilts that will be on display in all the buildings at the Village. There are some fabulous "signature" quilts with local names you might recognize and darling, hand-pieced doll quilts, like the one pictured.

The walk is from noon to 4pm so those who absolutely have to watch the Cy-Hawk game can do both because, believe us, we understand. 🏈

Beautiful photo from Whiterock Conservancy this morning.

Eagles convey the powers and messages of the spirit; it is man’s connection to the divine because it flies higher than any other bird...if an eagle appears it bestows freedom and courage to look ahead. The eagle is symbolic of the importance of honesty and truthful principles.

Iowa landowners to be honored at Capitol

Thank you, Beth Henning, Jon Judson, and Kay Neumann, for your contributions to conservation efforts in Guthrie County! “Gift to Iowa's Future” day is a yearly celebration of private landowners and organizations who made gifts of land, land value, or conservation easements for natural resources and recreation opportunities. In 2017, these gifts totaled more than $11 million and protected nearly 5,500 acres of land in 32 counties.

On Monday, March 5, forty-eight landowners will be recognized at the Iowa State Capitol for their contributions to conservation efforts in Iowa in 2017.
