O’Brien County, Iowa– The O’Brien County Conservation Board is looking forward to hosting guided/self-guided experiences at their parks this summer. Join the naturalist for a different kind of outdoor fun.
Get a “feel” for natural items. The next hike nature series will be “Rubbings” on Tuesday July 7th. O’Brien County Naturalist Charlene Elyea gives us a bit more insight on the program
(As Said) ” Come on out to Dog Creek! We’re gonna meet at the south parking lot, and, What we’re gonna do, is think about textures,” Elyea says “so you’ll go on a hike, collect some different textures and then, remember back in grade school art where you got to do some rubbings, so we’ll do that just as a way to look at things a little bit differently when you’re outdoors.”
Meet the naturalist in the south parking lot and hike up the hill stopping at various locations to capture some textures as you walk. The hike will be held on Tuesday, July 7 from 2:00 until 5:00 p.m.
The naturalist will welcome you and your group to give you an introduction and instructions.
Elyea reminds us your group must not include more than ten participants, take-home materials will be provided, and stations will be marked along the trail for your enjoyment.
If at any point, your group encounters another along the trail, please announce your presence and allow a safe passing distance.
The naturalist looks forward to helping you enjoy and explore the outdoors. Families are encouraged to attend together. Look forward to more of these types of programs during Summer 2020.
