Wildlife Camps

From IDNR Well, here we are at the final two weeks of the 2019 Wildlife Camps at State Parks season. This week we have 25 attending at Waubonsie and 45 at Big Creek. That puts us at 370 for the summer. I’d love to hit 400! We only need 30 in our final week at Lake Manawa and Prairie Rose (July 22-26). We currently have 15 registered for the final week. I can keep registration open until Thursday, which gives us 4 days to recruit 15 kids. We have some good leads at Harlan and IKM-Manning to help get more kids to Prairie Rose.  I have a contact at Council Bluffs Schools that might lead to more kids at Manawa. If any of you have contacts that can help us with efforts at Prairie Rose or Lake Manawa, let me know ASAP. I think we’re going to get there, but I’m going to make one final push to make sure we do. I’ve had so much fun this summer. It has been a pleasure working with all of you.   Feel free to share our website.   https://recserv.uiowa.edu/WildlifeCampsStateParks   Enjoy the rest of your weekend!   Thanks, Jay...

Lake Manawa Fireworks Support

Good evening neighbors. We have lived here nearly 5 years and until I was asked to be on the Friends of Lake Manawa Fireworks committee, I had no idea this display is made possible on donations only. I want to encourage all of us who are fortunate enough to have a front row seat with family and friends to give a donation. It is tax deductible and is easy to donate with the paypal link at: www.friendsoflakemanawa.org Thank you in advance, your help is greatly appreciated! Joni...
