Prairie Walk and Draw

Creston Arts is excited to introduce a weekly Praire Walk and Draw at Green Valley State Park. Participants will embark on a leisurely walk through the scenic trails of Green Valley State Park, allowing them to connect with nature and find inspiration. While walking, attendees are encouraged to capture their surroundings through sketching in their sketchbooks. This group will meet every Thursday from 5 to 6 P.M. starting June 6th and ending on August 1st. This group is sponsored by the Iowa Prairie Network. The Iowa Prairie Network is a grassroots, volunteer, organization that is dedicated to the preservation of Iowa's prairie heritage. IPN was formed in 1990 by Iowans concerned that our prairie heritage was disappearing.
