Iowa State Parks Volunteer Day at Mines of Spain

September 28, 2019 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM


We need your help!
On September 28th, 2019 all across the state of Iowa, Parks are hosting a Volunteer Day in preparation for 2020 or the 100th year of Iowa State Parks. Mines of Spain State Recreation Area is heavily utilized by hikers and our trails are showing the wear of the many years of exploring. Park staff this year have improved many miles of trails by correcting erosion spots, adding new gravel, re-decking steps, and with the assistance of Americorps, put in a new bridge across Horseshoe Bluff wetland The Mines of Spain Park Staff and the Friends of the Mines of Spain would like your assistance in repairing the Pine Chapel and Lead Mine Trails for our future park explorers. This event will take place on Saturday September 28th from 9:00AM-12:00PM with snacks and drinks provided by the Friends Group. Items to consider bringing would be shovels and gloves as we have a limited number for everyone to use. It is suggested to wear good soled shoes and long pants and sleeves as we will be tearing out old railroad ties and handling new ones.If you are interested in helping or have any additional questions please leave a message at 563-556-0620 or send me an email elli.slouha@dnr.iowa.gov so we know how many hands we have helping 😀

Any help with this project would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for everything each of you have done to make the Mines of Spain a great place!
