Those who dwell, as scientists or laymen, among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.
Our adult programs are designed to help adults connect to nature and to each other. We feel very fortunate to live in a wonderfully diverse community of people with varied interests and passions who are committed to being stewards of the land and working toward a more sustainable way of living. Our workshops educate interested adults about these things. Our outdoor activities get nature-loving adults together and outside!
We have offered many hands-on workshops, which have included: artisinal bread and bagel making and baking, canning and preserving, compost bin making and composting, sheet-mulching and no-till gardening, prairie history and stewardship, Hickory Hill hike and native and invasive species ID.
We also schedule a number of adult focused activities, including camping trips, day trips to natural areas in Eastern Iowa, and canoe floats.
