Summer is under way and here at the Iowa Learning Farms that means soil sampling, field work, water monitoring and traveling the state with the Conservation Station. We are attending many county fairs, field days and farmers markets this summer and may be headed your way! For a complete list of where we are headed check out http://www.waterrocks.org/. We are also participating in twenty-four library visits all across Iowa as an extension to the summer youth reading theme “Dig Into Reading”.
All these activities would be impossible without our crew of great summer interns! This summer, we have five undergraduate student interns on the team from all across the state. We are excited to have them gain hands on field experience and become leaders of the Conservation Pack.
Hope you get a chance to meet them in person at one of our many events across the state!
