Friends of the Wapsi Center

Friends of the Wapsi Center

The Friends of the Wapsi Center meets on the third Thursday of each month, at 6:30 P.M. Meetings are held at the Eagle View Eco Center during the months of March - October, and at an alternative site November - February. Drop-ins are welcome! Call the Wapsi River Center for more information, (563) 328-3286.

The Friends of the Wapsi Center, organized in January 1993, is a citizens’ support group dedicated to encouraging the public use and enjoyment of the Wapsi River Environmental Education Center and to the preservation of the Center’s natural resources for present and future generations. To support the ongoing activities of the Center, we volunteer to help with school groups throughout the year, donate maintenance skills, and host the Eagle View Eco Center on weekends. We operate a gift shop housed at the Eco Center which offers a wide variety of items, ranging from books and other education materials to home decorating items.

As a tax-exempt organization, we can raise funds and accept contributions which the Wapsi River Center uses for special projects and environmental education material purchases. The Friends Group also pitches in to help with special events like the Spring and Fall Volunteer Workdays, Ecology Day, Bald Eagle Days, and various workshops.
