Seasonal Staff, Campground Hosts, and Volunteers Make A Difference!

posted on 8/21/23

A Huge THANK YOU to our 2023 Jones County Conservation Seasonal Staff, Campground Hosts, and Volunteers who help maintain and care for our wildlife areas, preserves, parks and campground.  Without dedicated and caring operations and seasonal maintenance staff  it would be difficult to adequately maintain, care for, and operate a high quality campground and park as well as 23 additional wildlife areas, river accesses, and preserves.  Thanks to everyone who contributes large and small to conservation in Jones County!!!

Jones County Conservation 2023 Seasonal Staff Members:  Troy Olson, Joselyn Brady, Adrianna Herlache, Ethan Martensen, Rebecca Close, Ian Taylor, Emelie Ahrendsen, Evan Martensen, and Stacey Weets.
