New Hampton, Iowa – The Chickasaw County Conservation Board is holding a contest to name the newest area we’ve acquired near New Hampton.The contest is open to all elementary, middle and high school students in Nashua-Plainfield, Sumner-Fredericksburg, St.Joseph’s and New Hampton.
Matt Crayne is a naturalist with the conservation board and says the students get prizes if they’re the winner.
The parcel contains 2 ponds, wetlands, grassland, and it has the potential to have a trail around it that could become part of the Tribe Trail (bike trail) of New Hampton. Crayne says they wanted to get the students involved and aware.
Entries should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org before November 2, 2018. The Conservation Board will make a decision at the November 5, 2018 Conservation Board meeting. The winner will be noted in the winter issue of the Seven Rivers Record.
