Story County Conservation invites the public to the monthly O.W.L.S. (Older, Wiser, Livelier Seniors) program at the Story County Conservation Center at McFarland Park northeast of Ames on Tuesday, Jan. 2, beginning at 11 a.m.

This historical presentation by Tom Milligan brings to life the two-time Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist, creator of the “Duck Stamp” program and founder of the National Wildlife Federation.

O.W.L.S. programs are designed for “boomers” or older – but anyone can attend. An optional luncheon follows the program at 12 p.m. Lunch is catered for a $7.50 fee, and registration with payment is required by 4 p.m., Friday, Dec. 29. The planned lunch menu is soup (broccoli beer cheese, tomato bisque, and chili) and salad bar (variety of dressings and toppings), homemade bread, and Oreo fluff dessert.

Registration for lunch is available at or by calling our office at 515-232-2516 (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday – Friday).
