Local Projects

Iowa Conservation Connect is a partnership of conservation agencies that care about protecting and preserving our natural resources in Iowa. The partnership was formed to reach out to absentee and non-operator landowners and connect them with information and financial assistance available to help them maintain and improve the natural resources on their land.

If you’re a landowner who cares about conserving and protecting your land investment, you’ve come to the right place!

This site is designed for people who own agricultural land in Iowa, but either do not live on or operate that land. Conservation Connect helps connect landowners who do not operate their land with the resources available to them. For more information about the programs offered in your area, contact your local conservation officials.
