Make a Difference in Iowa

Since 1963, The Nature Conservancy in Iowa has worked to preserve our state’s natural landscapes through the advancement of land and water conservation. Project managers across the state work within their own communities to protect and conserve private lands and work with agricultural producers and companies on best practices. The Nature Conservancy has worked to protect more than 20,000 acres of land in Iowa.
