WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will host an informational meeting on Tuesday, January 9, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Walnut Woods State Park Lodge in West Des Moines to discuss a planned tree harvest.

The public is invited to the informational meeting to discuss 13 hazard trees located in the Walnut Woods campground. The DNR hopes to sell the trees to a timber buyer rather than paying to have them removed. 

Any questions can be directed to the Walnut Woods park manager, Tim Gedler (515) 285-4502, or district forester Aaron Wright (515) 993-4133.
