Another weekend is upon us. COVID-19 is still spreading in Iowa and in Hardin County, and medical professionals are warning the public to reduce their outings and, when they do go out, to practice simple infection control measures: wash your hands frequently, keep at least six feet of distance from others, and wear a face mask. Be careful when you're out and about, stay healthy, and have a great weekend.

Catch sight of migratory birds on their journey
It's a great time of year to see migratory birds pass through Hardin County on their way to farther destinations. Hardin County Conservation has two wetlands that attract a wide variety of birds, and this week it reported seeing the following birds at Pintail Wetlands: snow geese and greater white fronted geese, Canada geese, mallards, buffleheads, a variety of shorebirds, red winged blackbirds, and numerous other avian species. The wetlands welcome visitors for free. Pintail Wetlands is located on R Avenue, about five miles east of Iowa Falls and south of D15. Legacy Wetlands is located on Co Hwy D15 between Iowa Falls and Ackley, just north of Pintail Wetlands. Read more about both wetlands here.
