New Year's Iowa Checklist: Where to Go, What to Do Month By Month 1/6/2015 7:42:00 AM View Count 19235 It’s a New Year. I don’t do resolutions. So, call this a New Year's Outdoor Checklist; places or events across Iowa for each month. Most are return trips for me; worth a second or seventieth visit. A couple, I haven’t taken the time yet to check out. Maybe it will remind you of a few special outdoor ports of call, in the months ahead.
