It's a good day for snow adventures! Polk County Conservation staff members and their pups enjoyed a snowy hike at Yellow Banks today! Where will you explore this weekend? #LeadingYouOutdoors
Cold weather has nothing on our elk herds at Jester Park! It also doesnt seem to bother our park users! We love seeing the photos our park and trail users share with us. Thanks for this amazing shot @bryanconley ๐Ÿ˜Ž #LeadingYouOutdoors
Have you ever seen a cardinal like this before? Since this bird has dark eyes and not pink eyes, it is not an albino but a leucastic bird. Leucism does not completely eliminate pigment as does albinism. Leucastic animals often have patches of white and normal coloration elsewhere. ๐Ÿ“ธ Kim Petersen #LeadingYouOutdoors
You can catch us spending this weekend in the snow! #LeadingYouOutdoors

This week is flying by! Did you know that the mallard is thought to be the most abundant and wide-ranging duck on earth? #LeadingYouOutdoors
View on my walk today. I know this park like the back of my hand and have a ton of fond memories of a childhood spent here. โค๏ธ #intotheforest #heerywoods #parksofiowa #iowaparks #butlercountyiowa #timespentinnatureisneverwasted #smalltownlife #hometown #onmywalk #myview
Happy Monday! Hang in there! It's almost time for the holidays, which means more chances to get outside! ๐Ÿ“ธ Eric Williamson #LeadingYouOutdoors
Such an exceptionally pretty Sunday morning. First day the lake has been mostly frozen over.
It's Friday already?! We hope you all have a wonderful weekend full of exploring! ๐Ÿ“ธ @k.l.a #LeadingYouOutdoors
Steps and leaves. Stone State Park in the northern part of Iowa's Loess Hills.
What a day! Thanks to the PCC Natural Resource team and @conservcorps for taking over our Instagram story today with great photos and information about prescribed burning! #LeadingYouOutdoors
Woodland burns may not be quite as exciting as prairie burns but watching the smoke as it moves through the woods is a sight that canโ€™t be beat! #LeadingYouOutdoors . . . #polkcountyconservation #perscribedfire #burnseason #chichaquabottomsgreenbelt #ThisIsIowa #HighlightIowa #ig_Iowa #ExploringIowa #GetOutside #Conservation #IowaParks #InstaYes #CatchDSM #๐Ÿ”ฅ #hot #thetrailspeaks

Loved seeing these amazing elk at Pinicon Ridge Park ๐ŸฆŒ There are lots of warning signs to not get close to the fence because elk can bite. A mowed path leads all around the enclosure for easy viewing. Magnificent creatures! ๐Ÿ‚ The Park is beautiful with very lovely trails and an observation tower! ๐Ÿฟ . . . #fieldtripiowa #iowacountyparks #iowaparks #elk #countyconservation #beautifulnovemberday #ThisIsIowa #onlyiniowa #midwesttravel #midwestravelbloggers #mwtblogs #happythanksgiving

The beautiful Little Sioux Park โ€œLakeโ€ just outside of Correctionville serves as a spot for fishing, canoeing, and swimming. Over 100,000 campers visit Little Sioux Park each year open from May through October. What will bring them into our town? . . . . #iowatourism #flyoverstate #flyovertown #dontblink #recreation #iowaparks #parksandrec #parksandrecreation #woodburycounty #countypark #littlesiouxpark #correctionville #trails #biketrail #lakelife #camping #campinglife #glamping #glampinglife #outdoorslife #naturelovers #fishingspot #iowanice #gooutdoors #bikinglife #familyvacations #familytime #relax #slowdown

Happy Halloween! Finished off my Oct. With a tough 3 mile trail run at Ledges State Park. I love changing up my routine in the fall, while focusing on building speed and getting outdoors as much as possible. Have a safe beggars night! #trailrunning #mixitup #hilllworkout #buttlifters #outside #trail #iowa #mileschangeyou #halloweenworkout #iowarunner #fitfam #highlightiowa #healthcoach #halloween #miles #monthlymiles #fitnessmotivation #fitness #coach #triathlontraining #triathlete #runner #love #healthy #ledgesstatepark #iowaparks
This is what a crowd of small town Iowans look like. We recently gathered in our region of Iowa to find out about the availability of REAP grants to improve our communities. . . . . #iowa #reap #reapgrant #iowagrams #smalltownlife #flyoverstate #midwest #midwestlife #midwestmoment #midwestliving #conservation #historicpreservation #parksandrec #iowaparks #iowanice #iowans #correctionville

Did you know that Pileated Woodpeckers are nearly the size of a crow? The nest holes they make, create crucial shelter to many species including swifts, owls, ducks, bats and pine martens! ๐Ÿ“ธ Eric Williamson #LeadingYouOutdoors

It's safe to say that the PCC staff loves fall! We walk out of the office and get to see this ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚#LeadingYouOutdoors
"Are they bison or buffalo?" We get this question all of the time. They are bison... calling them buffalo is inaccurate, but a common mistake. The American Bison is native to North & South America & Europe, while the other two buffalo species reside in Africa & Asia. North American bison have a beard, while their Asian relatives don't & American bison can live in really cold places! ๐Ÿ“ธ Clayton Will #LeadingYouOutdoors
