Jasper County Conservation Halloween Nature Hike


Jasper County Conservation is inviting the public to a Halloween night hike featuring “Roy G. Biv and the Rainbow Connection” on Friday, October 15 at the Newton Izaak Walton League, located west of Newton on Hwy. F-36. 

This is a fun and educational, not scary, event featuring skits performed by volunteers with Jasper Conservation Connection and the Newton Community Theatre.  Hour-long hikes will begin at 6:00pm and will depart every 15 minutes.  The last hike will begin at 8:00pm. Hikers will make six stops to meet various characters, learn about color in nature, and listen to some fun and familiar songs.

Parents with young children are encouraged to come earlier in the evening.  Along with the hike, participants will be able to enjoy hotdogs provided by the Izaak Walton League, roast marshmallows over the fire, and go blacklight animal tracking.  Please check in at the clubhouse building.  The cost for this event is a free-will donation to Jasper Conservation Connection. 

For more information, please call the Jasper County Conservation Board office at (641) 792-9780, go to or watch Facebook updates @jaspercountyconservation.
