Field Trips and Events

in Iowa

Events and volunteer workdays will be posted here and our Facebook page.  The Nature Conservancy in Iowa uses volunteers for many activities from assisting in the office to stewardship and prescribed burns. Volunteer workdays will be posted on this site as they are scheduled. Currently, the Conservancy in Iowa does not have a staff person dedicated to running the volunteer program at this time, therefore other volunteer requests will be posted on this site on an as-needed basis.
