“This year’s Safari will be different than previous years, all in the effort to keep our community safe and healthy,” says Lilly Jensen, Driftless Safari Coordinator. “But it still offers a great way for families to get outside and have fun exploring Winneshiek County.”

According to Jensen, Safari participants should stay in appropriate group sizes and maintain social distancing and other protective me a s u r e s . Any necessary adjustments to the

program will be posted on driftri less-safari.org.

The 2020 Driftless Safari is made possible through

the generous support of the Center for Sustainable Communities at Luther College, Family Table Restaurant, the Winneshiek Soil and Water Conservation District, Winneshiek

County Conservation, and the Winneshiek County public libraries.
