MASON CITY – The Lime Creek Nature Center and Cerro Gordo County Conservation Board are hosting their annual Fall Festival on Sunday, September 8 at the nature center located just north of Mason City off Highway 65.  A variety of activities will be held throughout the day for the public to enjoy.

Activities include canoeing/kayaking, air rifles, archery, trail tram rides, crafts, squirrel feeder building, Dutch oven cooking, monarch butterfly tagging, minnow races, and many more!   A complete schedule of activities for the festival is available on the LCNC’s website at: www.cgcounty.org (click on departments/Lime Creek Nature Center).

A lunch of grilled burgers & brats will be served from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., with a prize drawing held at the end of the event at 2:30 p.m.  

LCNC naturalist Todd Von Ehwegen said the event should appeal to people of all ages.  “Our goal is to provide a wide variety of recreational activities, so there is something for everyone who attends,” he said.  “People can choose specific activities that appeal to them, or stay for the whole day and enjoy them all.”

    OH MY GOD THOSE KIDS ARE HOLDING WEAPONS OF WAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is unacceptable. louis and clark carried an air rifle. what are these kids pioneer explorers needing to take game to eat? why would a innocent child ever need to so much as be in the same room with an evil horrible firearm no less be taught how to use one! this is so despicable, teaching these kids safety and responsibility, putting them at the start of a path that could lead to a life of OUTDOOR SPORTS and not sitting in front of screens being brainwashed by politicians and trained to think like a liberal. I just can not understand why you would give kids high capacity bb guns! outrageous. they fit more than thirty .177 cal bb’s in them for sure. also kids if you pump them up thirty times they will really blow right through your average squirrel which is perfectly edible. next your gonna teach them to fiish and camp and they may just learn the basics of self sufficiency and how hard work rewards those who endure it. just disgusting.
