Macbride Nature Recreation Area to open June 24
Macbride Nature Recreation Area will be operational beginning Tuesday, June 24. The floodwaters have receded more quickly than originally expected, allowing the facility to reopen.
Due to flood debris, users are asked to not use the south end of the Bluestem Picnic Area. In addition, it is advised that users bring their own drinking water until the well water at the Recreation Area can be tested.
Wildlife Camps will now take place at Macbride Nature Recreation Area and the originally planned drop-off locations will once again be available.
For questions regarding Macbride Nature Recreation Area, contact Rob DuBay, 319-335-9293. For questions regarding Wildlife Camps, contact Jeanette Luke, 319-335-9293
