Learned About Water and Made the Front Page of the Newspaper
Pioneer Ridge hosted a Water Camp last Thursday afternoon for children ages 5-10. The kids learned about all things water and the boy along with friends and other camp participants ended up with a photo on the front page of our local paper.
Pioneer Ridge is part of the Wapello County Conservation Board and hosts functions for kids and families throughout the year. We have built bat houses, gone on bat hikes, learned about birds, hunted for tadpoles, found a giant snapping turtle that we lovingly refer to as "Snappy", built bird houses, gone ice fishing, strolled the paved trail, participated in a scavenger hunt, taken a horse drawn wagon through the forest in the snow to find a campfire to make s'mores and drink hot chocolate, and learned about animals from various habitats during the annual Night Hike each October. Even have done all of that, there is still more Pioneer Ridge has to offer that we haven't done and part of Pioneer Ridge that we haven't seen.
