Pottawattamie Conservation provides year-round environmental education programs in four main target areas: field trips at our county sites, outreach programs, public programs, and summer camps. The Pottawattamie Conservation Environmental Education county-wide program is headquartered at Hitchcock Nature Center in the Loess Hills Lodge Interpretive Facility.
Our environmental education programs are designed to develop an appreciation and understanding of our local environment, the communities within, and the inhabitants of those communities as well as to foster positive attitudes and patterns of conduct toward the environment. We believe that one is never finished learning. Each day offers the opportunity to observe and discover something new and to reflect and share our learning with others.
Naturalists are responsible for the development, presentation, coordination, promotion, and scheduling of environmental education programming including in-school presentations, field trips, summer camps and public programs.Read Bio
