Your family will love this new-age way of hunting for eggs. Learn how to use a GPS, then go search the woods to find the conservation Bunny's nests of hidden treasures of prizes and candy! Be sure to keep a watchful eye as you may come across a golden egg, earning you a special prize. Space is limited! Fee of $5 per collector (any child 3-14 years old) with registration is required by Friday, April 12.

The AAAA host monthly educational programs for the public on the 3rd Saturday of each month, except December, starting at 7:00 PM. We congregate at 7 PM for a Meet and Greet with the meeting starting at 7:30. All programs will be held at the Story County Conservation Center at McFarland Park unless noted otherwise in the program for that month. Afterwards, weather and sunset permitting, we will move to the club's Observatory located just East of the Story County Conservation Center for astronomical observing. Telescopes and binoculars will be available for your viewing pleasure.
On August 17th, 2017, the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory registered tiny ripples in spacetime, produced by a pair of frantically orbiting neutron stars right before they collided (GW170817). A Gamma Ray Burst was observed at the same time from the same region of the sky. The unprecedented physics, astronomy, and cosmology coming out of these observations will be presented.
