WCCB plans two June events
The Wapello County Conservation Board will host two events in June:
• On June 12, the Toddler Camp: Frog Stomp program, will be held at Pioneer Ridge Nature Center.
While there will not be any stomping of frogs, participants will be stomping around the ponds and wet areas of Pioneer Ridge in search of these fascinating critters.
They will learn what makes them good swimmers and jumpers. Children should wear clothes that can get a little wet and dirty. This camp is for children ages 3 and 4 with an adult and begins at 10 a.m. The cost is $5 per child. Pre-registration is requested to ensure materials are available for all participants.
• At 9:30 a.m. June 30, join the WCCB for a relaxing summer day on the river. Bring the family out for a float from Cliffland Access to the Eldon Fairgrounds.
Participants will meet at the Eldon fairgrounds and carpool to Cliffland Access. Bring your own canoe or borrow ours. Pre-register to ensure canoes are available for all who need them. All ages are welcome. Anyone ages 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
The cost is $5 per person and $5 donation for the use of a canoe.
