The program will start at 11 am.  Tomato soup and a Valentine’s dessert will be served afterwards at 12 pm. Free-will donations will be accepted by Tama County Conservation Board to cover costs for lunch and the guest speaker.

This presentation is part of Tama County Conservation Board's O.W.L.S. series. Older, Wiser, Livelier, Souls is a fun way to get out of the house, learn about nature, and enjoy socializing. Tama County Conservation hosts these presentations on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Presentations are followed by lunch with a view of Otter Creek Lake. This series is designed for seniors but all adults are welcome
