In 1994 the All Seasons Activity Center was completed at Rotary Reserve. Funding was provided through fund raising efforts of the Waterloo Rotary Club and the building was constructed by personnel of the Black Hawk County Conservation Board. The Rotary Reserve is a unique, quiet retreat area managed by the Black Hawk County Conservation Board in conjunction with the Waterloo Rotary Club.  This building can be rented for wedddings, parties, and business retreats.  Contact the County Conservation Board for rental information.

Public hunting is allowed in the designated area along the Cedar River east of the Rotary building.  Look for public hunting signs.  The area is bordered by the Cedar River to the east and railroad tracks to the west along with private property to the south.  Please respect private property and obey all local, state, and federal hunting regulations!
