Natural Connections

Arrowhead Park, Pottawattamie County

Saturday, October 13, 2018

Time spent outdoors and in the community is shown to improve the health, well-being, & quality of life for all people. Families looking to increase their knowledge & discover new ways to get outdoors are invited to join us for Natural Connections on Saturday, October 13th from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Arrowhead Park.  

Natural Connections is a new programming series aimed at providing access and the beginning tools needed for families to get outdoors. Attendees will enjoy guided activities & a story walk designed to make getting outdoors easy & fun. During this program we will also be distributing outdoor gear to interested families that will make heading outdoors easier as cooler temperatures approach.

Pre-registration for this event is required, please register online in minutes and let us know you are planning to attend. For more information please call 712-545-3283 or email Rene Stroud, Naturalist at

Following the program attendees are invited to meet at Breezy Lodge to take part in our annual Chili Fest which features pumpkin painting, games, trick or treating, a hayrack ride, & of course ... Chili! No pre-registration is needed to attend chili fest.

Both events are free with paid park admission, and you only pay admission once to attend both programs. Attendees must purchase a $3.00 per vehicle daily entrance pass or have a membership to the Pottawattamie Conservation Foundation to attend this program. Daily entrance passes may be purchased with exact change or check at the front gate and may be purchased the day of the event.
