APRIL, and 2016 WT Events are Blooming!

Over 140 entries for 2016–on-water & off-water events, extended trips, activities, meetings, conferences, holidays, observances, full moon & meteor shower dates, holidays, observances–are now available in the Events Calendar on this IWTA Website. Whether you’re trying to find something to do or trying to avoid conflicts as you make your own event plans, we hope you find the IWTA Events Calendar to be a useful tool.  Just click on “Events” above.

We know that many additional floats, training sessions, cleanups, etc. are still “firming-up” dates and plans, so we look forward to receiving and posting your event info as soon as possible. Contact us at  iowawta@gmail.com

Quick Checklist for April:
Remember–Chickadee Checkoff (Fish & Wildlife Fund).
Remember–Iowa boat registration renewals are due Apr 30.
Remember–spring temperatures present the risk of hypothermia. Proper training, a PFD, necessary gear, a paddle plan, and the buddy system are important for paddling at any time of the year. We encourage you to get out there, but be careful.

We were very pleased by the number of folks at the recent IEC “Lobby Day at the Capitol” who enjoy the IWTA Newsletter. Those comments help keep us motivated, but your flow of information makes the IWTA Newsletter and this website relevant, so please keep it coming.
