2018 Neal Smith NWR Annual Spring Volunteer Day

Join our annual DMACC-wide celebration of Earth Day at Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge for a day of volunteer work, education, fun, and a FREE LUNCH!

Saturday, April 21, 2018
7:45 a.m. to 2 p.m.

We will join other volunteers in an effort to restore our native tall grass prairie out on the refuge during the morning hours. We will then enjoy lunch, time to explore the Prairie Learning Center, and hopefully catch a glimpse of the bison herd as we head back to Des Moines.
