Join us for the FIRST public program at the NEW Environmental Learning Center!

The OWLS – Older, Wiser, Learning Seniors, is a new “lunch and learn” group program with the Mahaska County Conservation Board that is designed for senior learners with an interest in nature, environmental science and conservation topics. Programs are presented monthly by the MCCB Naturalist and guest speakers. Bring a lunch and join us for the first OWLS program that will be held on Wednesday, February 27 from 11:00 – 12:30 pm. The program will be held at the new Environmental Learning Center which is located at Caldwell Park on the east side of Oskaloosa at the address 2342 Hwy. 92 East. Parking is located behind the building.

The program on Wednesday will be titled, “The ELC and You” and Laura DeCook, MCCB Naturalist, will be the speaker.
She will give a special presentation to help guests learn more about the OWLS program, Environmental Learning Center, MCCB parks and programs and volunteer opportunities. A tour of the new building will also be given. When asked about the idea of this program, Laura said, “The OWLS program is a popular county conservation board program for adults and seniors across Iowa. I am excited to bring it to Mahaska County and provide fun, educational opportunities for the participants. Don’t miss out on this! OWLS will be an exciting addition to activities within the community.”

Bring your lunch! Coffee and lemonade will be provided. Registration is not required, but appreciated. If you have questions, call Laura DeCook at (641)673-9327 ext. 653. We hope to see you there – bring a friend!
