On Saturday, April 18th there will be a talk by Alicia Houk at 10am
in the Public Library Meeting Room, called Conservation Gardening:
Frogs and Toads. It is the second in a 4 part series (butterflies,
frogs, birds, bees).
About 95% of Iowa's wetlands have been drained
over the past 150 years, and this talk will focus on what that means for
Iowa's amphibians and how gardeners can create space for frogs and
Alicia Houk has taught Environmental Science at Indian Hills for
the past 3 years.
