In 2008, the City of Algona purchased 8 acres of wetland with the vision that it would one day become an environmental education and outdoor recreation space for the community. Futurewise, in collaboration with Natural Systems Design, is working with the City to help realize this vision.
The goal of this project is to bring together community members from Algona—and neighboring areas to:
- Learn about the City-owned wetland
- Contribute to a collective vision for its design and use
- Promote ongoing stewardship of this community asset
We aim to support the creation of a well-functioning wetland that is stewarded and appreciated by the entire Algona community for generations to come.
The goal of this project is to bring together community members from Algona—and its neighboring cities—to learn about the science of wetlands, build a collective vision for Algona's wetland, and design an enhancement program to help guide the City as it works to turn the community's vision into reality.
The project will include:
- Environmental education opportunities for youth and adults
- Community stakeholder discussions
- A virtual design meeting open to all
