Jester Park Nature Center
JESTER PARK NATURE CENTER OPENS!
On Sunday, August 5th, the Jester Park Nature Center opened their doors, and the turnout was absolutely amazing! The Center has been a community collaboration project with a broad range of contributors among local education institutions, non-profit organizations, municipalities, and businesses that believe in both the message behind the center and the opportunities that will be brought to the community once this project is brought to fruition. Through these public and private partnerships, a lifetime of learning and outdoor experiences will be available to all who visit the Jester Park Nature Center.This project wouldn't be possible without the tremendous support provided by the Great Outdoors Foundation. Acting as Polk County Conservation's fundraising arm during the final phase of this project, the Foundation believes strongly in the role natural resources and quality outdoor recreation and education provide to the community.
