wild places are as beautiful as the river valley decked out in all of its fall color splendor! Join us for a lazy float to cap off your fall paddling.

Feeling Queasy? Call, it’s Easy!



To get more people to report foodborne illness or “food poisoning,” the Iowa Department of Public Health recently launched the IowaSic Hotline. Now when you think you ate something that made you sick, you can call 1-844-IowaSic or 1-844-469-2742. A trained specialist will ask you about your symptoms and all the foods you ate recently. If your illness seems related to a food you bought, the Iowa Food and Consumer Safety Bureau will investigate.
By calling IowaSic, you may save others from the misery of foodborne illness — and worse. A food “bug” that makes you only queasy could possibly kill other, more vulnerable people, such as young children and the elderly.
