Oaks and oak communities provide environmental stability and ecological benefit for a wide array of creatures, including humans. This walking workshop will focus on identification of southwest Iowa’s oaks and the life-sustaining food webs they support. There is no tuition for this workshop, but preregistration is required. Enrollment will be limited so sign up soon!
