From: Logan Roberts - Tama County Naturalist / Park Ranger , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Tama County Conservation will be hosting award-winning nature photographer and author Ty Smedes at our Wednesday, March 14 O.W.L.S. (Older, Wiser, Livelier, Souls) event.

The presentation, titled after his book "The Return of Iowa's Bald Eagles" will journey you through a day in the life of an eagle. Hundreds of bald eagles call Iowa home, but it wasn't always that way. Ty's book covers the measures taken to save our national bird from the brink of extinction.

He will highlight action photos of Iowa's bald eagles twisting, turning, diving and catching fish. Come enjoy the power, grace, and majesty of the amazing bald eagle.
