Are you someone who loves the outdoors but is wanting to learn more? Pottawattamie Conservation recently announced their 2021 programming series, “A Land Ethic Workshop” which is a great opportunity for nature lovers to develop a deeper understanding of the natural world around them.

Each month from March through December, biologist Ron Cisar will cover a variety of topics in nature such as wildflower identification, butterfly basics, and winter survival secrets. All the topics explore our Loess Hills ecosystem and follow the work of conservationist and philosopher Aldo Leopold.

The program series kicks off with a free introductory session called “A Good Oak”. This session will be held online on February 27, 2021, at 9 a.m. This program will familiarize you with the larger programming series as a whole and introduce you to Aldo Leopold’s work. This program is intended for anyone over the age of 14. Please note that registration for this session closes at 12:00 a.m. on Friday, February 26, 2021. 

If you enjoy “A Good Oak”, you are invited to join in for the full season of programming. You may choose to register for individual monthly sessions for $15 per session, or you can register for the full 10 session program for a discounted price of $75. Participants who sign up for the full program will also receive a copy of “A Sand County Almanac” by Aldo Leopold, and a complimentary journal.
