Our Work in Story CountY
One of our current on-going projects is raising funds for the newest trail in Story County: The Tedesco Environmental Learning Corridor Trail on the south side of Ames. Contributions can be made at Tedesco Corridor Trail.
We also continue to raise funds to assist Story County Conservation acquisitions of more public land as the county's population grows and the demand for outdoor recreation grows even faster.
Some of he Outdoor Alliance's service projects include planting bushes and trees at Dakins Lake, seed collecting at Hickory Grove Park, invasive species management, tire and trash collecting.
Winters are a bit easier to enjoy with our presentations and Ames Reads Leopold, a nation wide celebration of conservation. Winter hikes are good at breaking up cabin fever, getting out and exploring public lands.
Other current and on-going projects include supporting Story County Conservation's water monitoring initiative, improvements at Hickory Grove Park, assisting in the acquisition of kayaks, paddles and life jackets and supporting Story County Conservation's Wild Women of the Woods environmental education and recreation.
