Bittersweet and Sweets

Join Iowa DNR , Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation and 1 Mississippi on August 24, 2013, for a work day and  ice cream sundaes!

Bittersweet and Sweets is an opportunity help restore a woodland in the Mines of Spain State Recreation Area on the south edge of Dubuque. The day will begin at 7:45 a.m. at the north gate of the Mines of Spain. Volunteers will remove oriental bittersweet followed by an ice cream social!

This is a great opportunity to improve and give back to Iowa in a very literal sense. It’s also a great way to connect to others that may share your interest for the outdoors, the Mines of Spain, or Dubuque.

If you’re interested in volunteering to remove oriental bittersweet, please register prior to the event with Natalie Busta at 1 Mississippi by email or at 563-379-5779.
