Hike, picnic, and explore this beautiful wooded area in Iowa.

The E.B. Lyons Interpretive Center is located in the Mines of Spain State Recreation Area, which is a state park in Dubuque County, Iowa. It is close to Dubuque which is the 6th largest city in the state. The Mines of Spain Recreation Area and E.B. Lyons Interpretive and Nature Center sit on 1437 acres of beautiful wooded and prairie land. The park's name has historical ties, as it was granted in 1796 when the town of Dubuque honored the governor of New Spain, Francisco Luis Hector de Carondelet, after he granted the town land for his mining operation. 

The area is fantastic for bird watching, exploring the many amazing trails, and visiting the great interpretive center that has interactive and educational stations throughout - and we should also add that admission is free. The outdoor trails are well kept and beautiful. The animals inside the center are clean and well cared for. Visitors really enjoy spending time with the wildlife and nature here. There is a downstairs children's area that has aquariums, live animals, and a small gift shop that also has food items and beverages.

Many volunteers from the community make guests feel at home and welcome. Their knowledge and information are invaluable.

If you enjoy nature and some hiking you will surely enjoy a visit to the E.B. Lyons Interpretive Center and Mines of Spain Recreation Area during your next visit to eatern Iowa.
