WHERE WE LIVE Pottawattamie County JOHN SCHREIER WORLD-HERALD NEWS SERVICE

MACEDONIA – Roughly a dozen pairs of yellow eyes stare down visitors as they enter the Stempel Bird Museum. The stuffed hawks, owls and falcons greeting visitors in this Pottawattamie County museum are just a handful of the roughly 300 birds on display for the public. The collection started because of a passion for wildlife by longtime Macedonia doctor Guido Stempel, who died in 1917. Stempel feared the extinction of many of the species he saw in the hills and prairies near this town, which lies 20 miles east of Council Bluffs by the West Nishnabotna River. His gift to future generations of Iowans was a donation of more than 200 species of birds, many of which were stuffed with cedar chips for preservation in the early 20th century. Most of the birds still maintain the lifelike poses Stempel strove to create a century ago. “It’s a grand collection,” said Ruby Bentley, president of the Macedonia Historical Society. “Where else can you see these so up close?” The museum might be the closest anyone can get to a whooping crane. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service estimated that only 400 of these tall, majestic white birds still roam wild today. Visitors also can view species not native to the continent, such as a parrot and a European goldfinch. While eyes might move directly toward the larger birds of prey and game birds, the museum also houses an array of tiny, colorful songbirds and hummingbirds. Although the historical society keeps windows shut and lights down to help preserve the birds, visitors can contact City Hall or the Pioneer Trail Museum to schedule a tour.

WHERE WE LIVE Harrison County MISSOURI VALLEY – A berry no more than half the diameter of a dime has made big waves in Harrison County and across the nation. Vaughn, Cindy and Andrew Pittz turned Sawmill Hollow, an organic farm located in the Loess Hills north of town, into the first commercial aronia berry plantation in the country in the mid-1990s. Since then, the Pittzes have been alerting the world to this little fruit through traveling across the country, hosting field days and creating the North American Aronia Berry Festival, held in September. While numerous operations nationwide have begun cultivating the berries, only Missouri Valley is known as the Aronia Berry Capital of the United States. “We feel it has the potential to be a great crop for the rural Midwest,” Vaughn Pittz said, “one that can benefit both family farmers and Heartland communities.” Aronia berries are native to the region, but the easy-to-grow berries weren’t reintroduced until Vaughn Pittz discovered them at a convention.
