Another service that Hardin County Conservation provides to our communities is traveling environmental education programs.
A Calkins interpreter gives a program to the residents at Scenic Manor Retirement Community in Iowa Falls below.
Each year, Calkins Nature Area staff gives dozens of talks at schools, retirement homes and various community groups. We strive to make our programs interesting and interactive for all ages. We love to bring live critters with us when we can. Conservation staff can also assist groups with prairie and tree planting demonstrations. These programs are performed free of charge as long as they are in Hardin County.
Contact Calkins Nature Area staff by phone at 641-648-9878 or email Calkins staff to schedule a program for your school, organization or other community group.
