Turkey River Summer Safari BeginsPosted: June 25, 2012
The first Turkey River Recreational Corridor (TRRC) Summer Safari began over Memorial Day weekend in Clayton and Fayette counties in northeast Iowa. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, this summer-long adventure will take area residents and visitors to new and favorite places along the Turkey River valley. The outdoor safari was designed after similar events in Lincoln, Nebraska and Winneshiek County, Iowa as a way to get families outside during the summer months.
Those interested in the safari adventure can register online through the Turkey River Recreational Corridor website at www.turkeyrivercorridor.com. The TRRC Summer Safari was funded by a generous donation from the Clayton County Foundation for the Future grant as well as numerous contributions from area businesses and civic organizations. In-kind support and technical assistance was also provided by the Clayton and Fayette County Conservation Boards, Northeast Iowa Food and Fitness Initiative and Northeast Iowa RC&D.
