Area seniors are invited to join us for a special program on the frog species that call Iowa & Nebraska home at Hitchcock Nature Center. Bring your lunch and learn more about these amazing amphibians with help from a Pottawattamie County Conservation Naturalist.
This program will be held on Tuesday, April 17th from noon to 1:00 p.m. at the Loess Hills Lodge at Hitchcock Nature Center. Our gift shop, exhibit gallery & observation deck will be open before and after this program so make sure and allow extra time to explore all we have to offer at Hitchcock Nature Center. Pre-registration is not required for this event.
