Kothenbeutel Pasque Flower Hike & Workday

Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation 

Enjoy a spring day on the prairie with INHF by going on a hike and joining in a volunteer workday!

The morning will be spent hiking alongside Central Iowa Land Stewardship Director, Ryan Schmidt, to find pasque flowers, one of spring's first wildflowers. The hike will also provide insight into the history of the property and on-site restoration projects.

In the afternoon, join INHF and the Kothenbeutel Land Ambassadors helping with the restoration efforts on the property. Volunteers will remove unwanted brush from the landscape with hand tools (ex. Loppers, handsaws). 

The hike will take place between 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m., and the work day will be from 12:30 – 2 p.m. You can attend both the morning and afternoon, or choose between the two activities.

If you're staying for both activities, you are encouraged to bring a lunch. New and experienced hikers alike are welcome!

RSVP is requested for this event.
