Now is the time for women to nurture the body that has carried them far, feed the soul that has guided them, and steward the land that has served them. Join us for one of the longest-running events at Indian Creek Nature Center: the 26th annual Women in Nature workshop. This event is sure to leave you refreshed and connected to nature. Plus, Women in Nature still features our signature guided hikes, both in the morning and afternoon, where you join a group based on your preferred pace.
Lunch Information: This year, we want to encourage women to share food, stories and recipes! For lunch, we will hold a potluck. After you register, please visit our online potluck sign up here or call Rachel at 319-362-0664 to choose a type of dish you’d like to bring.
What to bring: Please plan to dress for both indoor an outdoor experiences during Women in Nature. We recommend the following: comfortable layered clothing, sturdy shoes for walking/hiking, refillable water bottle, hat, sunglasses, and a yoga mat or towel if participating in yoga. See the lunch information section above for details on bringing your potluck item. Note: The best part about Women in Nature is being outside in all weather! Feedback from previous participants has been outstanding regarding the outdoor experience of the hikes in rain. Please bring a rain jacket and rain boots, if appropriate. We will have a limited number of ponchos to borrow.
Why attend Women in Nature? Nature Center board member, Emily Flowergarden’s, top two reasons to attend:
- An opportunity to have a weekend “getaway”, extremely rare to stay so close and feel like a weekend retreat.
- She wanted to set aside time to enjoy ICNC with a purpose and the comfort of a ladies event with several choices and as well as having a “safe” place to just be.
