We had great volunteers for The Science Festival Trail!
WDM students were able to earn Silver Cord hours and we could not have done this without them!
Our adult volunteers were amazing! A big thank you to:

Join Science Iowa for a family-friendly event promoting science literacy, conservation, and volunteerism. Walk, bike or run the 3.2-mile nature trail at Raccoon River Park and visit stations along the way and in the shelters for activities and opportunities to learn about science, the environment, and volunteer opportunities while enjoying LIVE music. Take-home craft and STEM activities will be available for the kids. Get your passport stamped at each station and you’ll earn a bag of fun treats and gifts as well as free hot dogs, ice cream and popcorn.
Science Iowa is a non-profit, non-partisan group supporting science in the public interest and evidence-based policies. Come join us for a day at the park!
