Come discover more about monarch butterflies, their unusual lifestyle and life cycle and their miraculous migration to Mexico. A Warren County Conservation Naturalist will teach you how to catch and handle a monarch, determine gender, and properly tag them in the wild as part of a national research project. All monarchs will be released after they are tagged. Bring a butterfly net if you have one, or share a park net if you don’t. Fun for the whole family! This event is held in partnership with Indianola Parks & Recreation. Please register by September 13th here.
Join the Friends of Warren County Conservation for our annual prairie picnic fundraiser. This year the Friends are jazzing things up with live music and a catered meal. This relaxing evening includes a social hour with appetizers & drinks, and BBQ style meal with sides and desserts. After the meal there will be a silent and live auction filled with lots of nature related items, handmade goodies, and nature experiences to choose from. Bring your friends and family out for a casual evening on the prairie.
