Robison Wildlife Acres is a unique area in south-central Story County consisting of 78 acres. The initial 58 acres were donated to the conservation board by a former board member, Clay Robison. The remaining 20 acres were purchased from the Whitaker estate.

West Indian Creek forms the eastern boundary of the park, and nature trails wind through grassland and woodland. The area is a favorite spot for spring wildflower walks and nature study and serves as an outdoor classroom for the Environmental Education Program.

The park has been set aside as a wildlife refuge, hunting or trapping are not allowed.

  • Portable bathroom (April-October); no water is available at the site.
