October and November are outdoor months here in Iowa. Harvest is progressing rapidly. Football, marching band contests, and cross country have the teens outside. In addition, the County Conservation Board and the Port Louisa Refuge have come up with some unique outdoor programs.

Last weekend, I was out at Virginia Grove Park for the annual Halloween Hike.

This weekend I’ll be working my way through a corn maze, attending a workshop on using digital cameras for nature photography and learning to make and use an atlatl (spear chucker).

In a few weeks the Port Louisa Refuge will be open for photographers and birders hoping to get a good look at the ducks and other birds that stop there to rest on their way south.

You can share in the fun by following along in my blog or, if you live nearby, you can get advance notice of similar activities from the Naturally Louisa web site.

While you’re there, browse around. You’ll find all kinds of information that will help you plan a great weekend here in Louisa County.

P.S. Congratulations to the football team for advancing to the play offs, to the cross-country team for taking districts and moving on to state, and to the band for taking first place in the Ft. Madison and Mt. Pleasant competitions and earning a 1 rating at the state marching band competition.
