    Cedar Valley, IA –Silos & Smokestacks National Heritage Area (SSNHA) is partnering with
    Hartman Reserve Nature Center this summer to offer day camps for children in grades 3-8.
    Campers will spend the summer learning about their heritage while exploring the sights,

    the Heritage Area including visits to Living History Farms, Laura Ingalls Wilder Park &
    Museum, Hawkeye Buffalo Ranch, Effigy Mounds, Hansen’s Dairy, Herbert Hoover
    Presidential Library & Museum and many other sites.

    During the months of June, July and August camps will be offered for grades 3-5 on
