Do you enjoy taking pictures in Story County parks? Story County Conservation 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 5 - 23 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 Spring Festival at McFarland Park on May 6! Photos from last year’s contest can be found on our Facebook page.

Iowa rivers and associated gravel deposits contain the remains of extinct Ice Age animals, for example, musk ox, mammoth and mastodon, caribou, stag moose, and ground sloth. Study of this material aids in the reconstruction of the ecology of these animals as well as the context, cause, and chronology of their extinction. Presentation by Matt Hill.
Menu: beef and noodles, mashed potatoes, mixed veggies, dinner roll, chocolate pound cake.
(Register and pay for lunch by March 2)
