Night Prairie Burn   

Marr Park

Friday, April 5th        7:15 p.m.

The evening will begin with a presentation within the Conservation Center on prairie fires, their role in the past, and their role today.  Then, at 8:00 p.m., we will head to the front of the park to see the north prairie being lit.

Note:  This fire could burn very quickly;  latecomers could miss it.

Recycled Tire Bird Feeder

Marr Park shop

Saturday, May 4th        1:00 p.m.

Surprise Mom this Mother’s Day with a one-of-a-kind birdfeeder made from an old tire.  Meet at the Marr Park shop (head straight south upon entering the park and turn left into the shop area across from the residence).  You will design, cut, assemble, and paint your personal creation.  Pre-registration is required.  Ages 10 and up;  children must be accompanied by an adult.  Material fee:  $5.


Go Fish!!  Young Person

Introduce your child to the life sport of fishing and outdoor fun.  Geared toward preschoolers and loer elementary students, this program will cover the fish of Iowa, the excitement of fishing, and then spend most of the morning cane pole fishing.  Adults will also have a brief session on fishing and water safety.  All children must be accompanied by an adult.  This even takes place during the DNR’s free fishing days, so fishing licenses are not required during this weekend.

Clemons Creek Shoot

Both the Washington CCB and the Washington Archers will be on hand to direct participants on the archery and shooting range.  Whether you are a beginner, amateur, or just curious, you will be able to try your hand at different target practices, learn a bit about gun and bow safety, and proper form.  All ages are welcome to this public event.
