Old Man’s Timber Tour
May 2 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
If you’re interested in conservation and restoration practices, you’ll want to attend this event, which will include a short presentation in a reconstructed and restored 19th-century barn and a hike around the property, known as Old Man’s Timber. We’ll see wildflowers, timber restoration activities, a pond, and more.
Larry Weber will talk about the restoration project and the Iowa Watershed Approach, a statewide watershed improvement program designed to slow down the movement of water through the landscape by strategically building farm ponds, wetlands, and other conservation practices in the watershed. IWA researchers hope to restore some of Iowa’s natural resiliency to heavy rainfall and flooding, while also improving water quality, adding natural beauty to the landscape, creating wildlife habitat, and restoring ecosystem services.
Pre-registration is required, and space is limited. If you had already registered for the April 10 tour that was cancelled and would like to join us on May 2, please send an email to Jackie Stolze, or call 319-335-6410.
