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.
