Over 18,000 people, ages 0-109, were reached through the Sioux County Conservation Board’s Environmental Education Program this past year. Just think, with the addition of the Sioux County Nature Center, even more people could be reached! With this new building, we project the following numbers:
+ 1,500 more students reached through field trips
+ 1,000 people could attend public programs and events
+ 250 more kids at summer camp
+ 200 civic groups, nursing home visits
+ Unknown number of families, individuals, colleges, self-led groups
With the Sioux County Nature Center we could reach close to an additional 3,000+ program participants in our naturalist lead programs. It is estimated that we could also see an additional 14,000+ visitors to the center in the first year.
The Sioux County Conservation Foundation needs to close a $1.1 million gap by January 10, 2018 to receive an Enhance Iowa Grant to finish the project.
Will you partner with us to reach our year-end impact goal to connect our youth, elderly and families with the outdoors?
