Dallas County Events

Iowa’s change of seasons brings a multitude of events in each city and town of Dallas County. Bicyclists enjoy the scenic rides even in the cold of winter, while visitors from afar visit Dallas County communities for their famous festivals in warmer months. Farmers markets bring country fresh goods to town, and each community shares the holiday spirit with open houses, parades and celebrations as the year winds down.

Owl Prowl
Kuehn Conservation Area
Tuesday, Jan. 31 • 6:30-8 p.m.
Bear Creek Nature Center – Kuehn
Our “Owl Prowl” hike will begin around a bonfire, with hot chocolate, as we introduce you to the owls of Dallas County and their signature calls. Next, we will venture out on the woodland trails of Kuehn and try our luck at calling the owls. If we are successful, you will experience the thrill of hearing an owl answer back to our calls. Why are they talking to us? What are they saying? Join us on the prowl, and we will let an owl answer your questions. This program is purposefully scheduled near the full moon. Owls or no owls, a moonlit nighttime hike across the snow-covered trails of Kuehn is an adventure in and of itself. Your nights in the woods will never be the same once you have talked to an owl. Registration is required for this program.

Maple Syruping
Two-part program, dates are tentative and weather dependent.
Tree Tapping: Saturday, Feb. 10 • 9–10 a.m.
Boiling Off: Saturday, March 3 • 9 a.m. – noon
Sportsman Park, Dawson
No matter what the winter is like, spring always comes around. Trees that have been dormant all winter long respond to the increasing day length and warmer temperatures by sending sap flowing through their systems, preparing to nourish the tiny leaf and flower buds at stems’ ends. If we time the tapping right, we can siphon off some of the sweet sap of maple trees and boil it down to make maple syrup. The tree tapping program will involve going outside to drill small holes in select maple trees, installing taps and hooking up the collection system. Boiling off (the second program) is when we take the collected sap and heat it so the excess water evaporates. With a new, flat pan, this process should go much faster. Feel free to stop by to see and taste what’s going on, realizing that the tastiest results occur near the end. Register to keep informed of any potential date changes, or check out our webpage and Facebook.

Eagle Watch
Sunday, Feb. 25 • noon - 4 p.m.
Saylorville Reservoir
The idea that we would offer a program of bald eagle viewing once seemed absurd in the face of the species’ pending extinction. This event is a testament that conservation can, and does, work. Come view what is possible when we choose to care for the wild. The open waters below the dam at the Saylorville Reservoir create feeding opportunities that congregate central Iowa’s winter eagles and almost guarantee you a chance to view an eagle. This program is a joint effort between DCCB, Polk County Conservation and the Corps of Engineers. It provides the public with the thrill of viewing eagles in the Des Moines River valley and educational programming to increase your understanding of these majestic birds. Specific viewing locations and programming schedules can be obtained at the Saylorville Visitors’ Center on the day of the event.
