[ARCHIVED] Earth Day Volunteering (Postponed from April 22nd)

Coneflower Prairie

Calkins Nature Area staff members are looking for dedicated, hard working volunteers to assist with trash pick up and invasive species removal for Earth Day!


The volunteer day will be Monday, April 28th, 2019, from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM at Calkins Nature Center in Iowa Falls. (View Map of Location) This activity was postponed from April 22nd, due to inclement weather conditions.

Volunteer Activity 

Volunteers will help us remove invasive honeysuckle and multiflora rose inside our upper pine plantation. Kids are more than welcome to assist as long as parents are there to supervise.

What to Bring

We ask that you bring boots or stout tennis shoes as we will spend the majority of our time in the forest and we will be working with some sharp tools and equipment. Drinks will be provided, but please bring a water bottle and a small snack as we work in the field.

Sign Up

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact any of the nature center staff members at 641-648-9878 or via email so we can compile a list of people who will be there to help.

Thank you!
