If you drive up and down 1st Ave in Coralville as often as I do you'll know there are some serious changes going on at the Iowa River Landing. This is the area just south of I-80 and very close to the Marriott on E 9th St. Well, if you're curious as to what is going on there, Thursday September 22 is your chance to find out in a "show and tell" walking tour organized by the City of Coralville. There have been A LOT of changes in Coralville since I moved here in 2000. One thing that has always impressed me is just what a well-organized and well-planned little town this is. It's nice to see Coralville continue to grow in a thoughtful and environmentally conscious way.
This event runs from 4.00pm - 7.00pm and will start at the Marriott Lower East Terrace with maps posted at each station along the way showing the route.
Highlights of the Walking Tour Thursday September 22, 2011 - 4.00pm - 7.00pm
Earthview Environmental staff will answer questions about the plants and aquatic life in the wetlands
