The 2017 Speaker Series is a new programming series designed for teens and adults to provide them with an opportunity to learn from and interact with various authorities in the fields of conservation and environmental science. Programs are free with paid park admission and will be held at Hitchcock Nature Center on April 9th and then on the second Saturday of the month, May through October. Each program will begin at 4:00 p.m. and will last approximately 1 hour.
These programs are presented free of charge with paid park admission thanks to the generous support of the Pottawattamie Conservation Foundation and a grant from Humanities Iowa, a state-based affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Free will donations are always accepted to support our effort to provide free public programming options throughout Pottawattamie County.

Annual permits may be purchased for $10.00 from staff at any of our parks or at the Loess Hills Lodge at Hitchcock Nature Center during regular business hours.
