Do you enjoy taking pictures in Story County parks? Story County Conservation Partners sponsors an annual photo contest to encourage the public to visit and photograph the beauty and recreational activities in SCC parks and natural areas. Categories include landscape, flora and fungi, fauna, and connecting people and recreation.
Contest photos may be submitted March 6 - 24 at the conservation center; each photographer may submit up to three entries. Youth entries (18 years or younger) will be judged separately. Prizes will be awarded at the Partners Spring Festival at McFarland Park on May 7! Photos from last year’s contest can be found on our Facebook page.

This five-part course is well-suited for the beginning gardener or those looking for ways to be more sustainable on their land. Landscape for Life shows you sustainable methods for working with nature, your soil, and the local climate to create a garden that's healthier for humans and the environment. The sessions cover soils, water and its application, harvesting, plant selection, gardening to attract wildlife, and landscape construction materials. Leave each week with homework that will result in your personal landscape plan for depicting your home structures, soil types, areas of sun and shade, water and wing flow, and current plantings. This plan will help guide your decisions as you make your landscape more sustainable!
