On Saturday, February 18 from 1:00 - 4:00 P.M. Scott County Park (Whispering Pines Shelter) will be hosting a “Get Outdoors” Day. Come join Wapsi River Center naturalists to explore and enjoy a few healthy, winter recreational activities like cross-country skiing, snowshoeing (please bring winter boots), hiking and sledding (please bring your own).  Equipment will provided throughout the day on a rotating basis.  We will have the shelter to warm up, plus hot drinks will be provided – BYOM (bring your own mug).  Participants are welcome to bring a “picnic” lunch as well to enjoy by the fire!  This event is weather dependent; if conditions are not favorable the event will be cancelled.  Please call (563) 328-3286 to register.

The south entrance to Scott County Park (18850 270th Street ~ Eldridge) is located off old Highway 61 just north of Parkview.  The whispering pine shelter can be found by taking two, consecutive right-hand turns upon entering the park (from the south).
