Earth, Wind and Fire: Recapping INHF's spring burn season
Spring burn season in Iowa is all about three things: earth, wind and fire. When the three elements align under the right conditions, they create a display (with some help from INHF staff) that is as impressive as it is integral to Iowa's natural landscape.
INHF,  Peace Tree Brewing Company Polk County Conservation  and  REI West Des Moines  have partnered together to celebrate and support Iowa trails in conjunction with National Trails Day.
