The Great Swiss Gnome Hunt
Friday, November 27 @ 10 AM–2 PM
Swiss Valley Nature Center (Peosta, IA)
Every year Swiss Valley staff report sightings of tiny men in red hats hiding out in nooks and crannies along the trails of the preserve. Gnomes are known to be highly skilled wood workers and deeply care for nature may be why they are found here. It’s been long said that garden gnomes are nocturnal creatures being timid and afraid of humans. They freeze during the day in hopes that no one can see them, much like rabbits do. Or perhaps they keep moseying around, it’s hard to say. Keep a safe physical distance of six feet or more from all gnomes, as well as other humans who are not a part of your group. Clues will be posted about their location closer to the event. Sponsored by the Friends of Dubuque County Conservation Board. Free. 13606 Swiss Valley Rd. 563-556-6745. facebook.com/swissvalleync.
