The Nature Conservancy announced today it received a $3,600 grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Plymouth County. The funds will be used to purchase chain saws, brush cutters and other tools, said Jan Glendening, assistant state director of the Iowa Chapter.
“The equipment will be an important part of our continuing land stewardship efforts at our Broken Kettle Grassland Preserve in Plymouth County,” said Glendening. “These tools will greatly help our crews to return the prairie to its native state. We’re very grateful that the foundation recognizes the vital work we’re doing at Broken Kettle.”
