O.W.L.S. programs are held each month at 11 am at the Story County Conservation Center.  Thesea re designed for "boomers" or older - but anyone can attend.  An optional luncheon follows the program for just $7.50.

Learn about a harmless native wasp that hunts metallic wood boring beetles like Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) and brings them back to ground nests.  Observers can easily watch wasp nests and capture or collect abandoned beetles to be sent in for identification.  Learn how early detection through this program could help us to better control EAB in Story County.

Registration for lunch by 4 pm, Friday, February 26.  Menu:  Beef and noodles, mashed potatoes, corn, dinner roll, apple crisp.
