Council Bluffs, IA: With live raptors, food from local favorite Barleys Bar, a beer tasting from Full Fledged Brewing Company and amazing auction items, Go Wild for Conservation is a fun, 21+, outdoor fundraiser where the public can support Pottawattamie Conservation parks. Participants can also join online for a livestream of the event.


Many school-age children are currently missing out on opportunities to connect with our county’s beautiful parks. Proceeds from “Go Wild for Conservation” support Pottawattamie Conservation Foundation’s Get On Board program, providing field trip scholarships so that county students can get outside, learn something new and experience what’s wild.


The public are invited to support this work. Details are below:


• Auction bidding is available now through September 9th. Text PCF to 72727 or visit https://pottcountyia.home.qtego.net/ 

• Event time: Thursday, September 9th | 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. Tickets are available at the link above until September 7th.

• Event location: The Plaza courtyard, Mid-America Center Entertainment District

 

Go Wild for Conservation is put on by the Pottawattamie Conservation Foundation.


“Supporting student outdoor education and experiences is extremely important, especially in the wake of COVID-19,” said Pottawattamie Conservation Foundation president Kelli O’Brien. “We want to make sure young residents have that opportunity in Pottawattamie County.”


Go Wild for Conservation would not be possible without our sponsors, including: Union Pacific Railroad, American Wealth Partners, Petersen Law PLLC, Snyder & Associates, Judd Knispel - State Farm, Thien Farm Management.
