Enjoy Winter = with an Up Date!

Up Date!
Ron Lenth with the Fayette County Extension Office is still doing the program today at the Oelwein Library!
But the Naturalist from the Fayette County Conservation Board has decided to stay safe and not travel down to Oelwein due to the Heavy Fog making visibility only 1/4 mile or less in the Elgin area and 0 miles in the Oelwein area.
Stay Safe Everyone, the Naturalist hope you enjoy the program with Ron.

Thank you to all who did safely travel to see the program, safe travels home.
