Dragoon Trace Nature Center grand opening nears

The Ringgold County Conservation Board invites the public to the grand opening of the new Dragoon Trace Nature Center in Mount Ayr on Saturday, June 24 at 2 p.m.
There will be a grand opening ceremony, followed by a ribbon cutting that officially opens the building to the public.
The Dragoon Trace Nature Center will be a spotlight in southwest Iowa and will be the only environmental education facility in all surrounding counties.
This project includes unique natural resources and creative funding alliances that will enhance the cultural, recreational and educational assets in Southern Iowa and offer a diverse program selection to the public that will cater to all ages.
This project was funded by multiple grants, memorials, business and personal donations. No local tax dollars have been used in the construction of the Dragoon Trace Nature Center.
(The Dragoon Trace is an historic trail that runs north and south through central Iowa and Missouri, including Ringgold County. It was originally made by the migration of animals, such as bison. Later used by the pioneers, this was the road to change Iowa’s civilization).
