On Saturday, January 28 from 1:00 - 3:00 P.M. the Wapsi River Environmental Education Center will be hosting a Toasty Toes Workshop. Converting a pile of outgrown or underutilized t-shirts into colorful, cozy rugs has never been easier; especially with the help of a most unique loom – a hula hoop!  Each participant needs to bring about a dozen T-shirts (boy’s size L or equivalent (men’s/women’s size S or girl’s size L/XL) work well, but other sizes can be adapted) and a pair of sharp, fabric scissors.  If you have access to a quilting tool called a rotary cutter, consider bringing it with the mat and ruler.  Looms will be provided.  This program is ideal for beginning weavers, and would appeal to families, scout groups as well as individuals.  Walk-ins are welcome, but pre-registration is appreciated by calling (563) 328-3286.


The Wapsi River Environmental Education Center can be found 6 miles south of Wheatland or 1 mile northwest of Dixon, Iowa by taking County Road Y4E.  Then turn north at 52nd Avenue and follow the signs for about 1 mile.

TOBYMAC UNPLUGGED - A Night of Stories and Songs, featuring special guest Jamie Grace, is coming this Fall to select cities. It will be a totally different TobyMac show, a time where it’s not about the lights, smoke, big stage, numerous musicians… instead it will be more intimate and personal, a “storyteller’s night” where TobyMac will share where the songs came from. The song arrangements will be different… not completely acoustic, but basically acoustic—thus the name UNPLUGGED.

The ascension of TobyMac’s solo career has been nothing short of spectacular.  In an era of declining music sales he has consistently defied the odds and has seen his sales increase with each new album release. Having climbed the mountain once with the group dcTalk, TobyMac knows how difficult the journey can be and how much work the process actually takes.  Upon embarking on his solo career, Toby sought to surround himself with a talented and diverse cast of characters, aptly named the Diverse City Band. The result has been a musical fusion that radiates with an unquenchable energy and a penetrating message.
