  1. Penguin Snowshoe Parade

    January 20, 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM @ McFarland Park

    January 20th of each year is Penguin Awareness Day! Walk like a penguin as we explore McFarland Park and celebrate these quirky flightless birds. No experience is necessary to waddle and sway as snowshoes help us conquer the snow. Learn about penguins from around the world and what makes them so extraordinary. This program is designed for ages 8 and up. Please remember to dress for the weather (black and white optional) as we will be out in snow for the duration of the program. Program will be canceled if snow conditions are insufficient. Fee of $5 with registration is required by 4pm on Tuesday, January 16.

  2. SCC & OASCO Winter Hikes - Ronald "Dick" Jordan Family Wildlife Area

    January 25, 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM @ Meet at 265th Street Access (56091 265th Street, Ames). This property is owned by the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation and is not yet open to the public.

    This is a chance to get out of the house with other outdoor enthusiasts and get some exercise after the long holiday season! The hikes are geared toward those with passion for the outdoors looking to explore local public areas during the wintry months. The hikes may vary from good exercise to a social stroll, and will end with snacks and beverages brought by the participants. Wear comfortable walking boots that will keep your feet dry, and dress for the weather (layers recommended). Bring a water bottle or thermos.
