How We Work

The Nature Conservancy endeavors to preserve Iowa's plants, animals, and natural communities.

Since 1963 The Nature Conservancy in Iowa has worked to preserve our state’s natural landscapes through the advancement of land and water conservation. We have project managers across the state who know and work within their own communities to protect and conserve private lands and work with agricultural producers and companies on best management practices. We value a scientific, systematic approach to conservation that incorporates long-term strategic planning.  See our current Iowa Board of Trustees.
