Easier navigation of county park system! by sarahtar

The website is just a few hours old, but looks very promising if all the counties hop on board!

Our family has often been frustrated with the clunky county park system. When looking for new trails, parks, or campsites, it’s cumbersome to look up each county conservation board and hope their website’s up to date. Our counties have some awesome natural resources, but finding out about them sometimes means a few phone calls and, well, if your family’s like mine, that’s not likely to happen.

Enter mycountyparks. com! Only a few of Iowa’s 99 counties (Lynn, Polk, and BlackHawk, mainly) have entered their information, but the organizers think the other counties will be adding their information over the next few months.

You’ll also note if you keep reading that Bill Nye is a swing dancer. See, all the cool Crunchies are swing dancers.
