The purpose of county conservation boards is
to acquire, develop, maintain and make available to the public: parks, museums,
preserves, county forests, playground, wildlife and other conservation areas and
to promote and preserve the health and general welfare of people. To encourage
the orderly development and conservation of natural resources and to cultivate
good citizenship by providing varied programs of public recreation.
The Delaware County Conservation Board currently manages over 2,064 acres of
county-owned and leased land for outdoor recreation activities and for
conservation and preservation of our natural resources.
The five-member board is appointed by the County Board of Supervisors and serves
without pay. Conservation Board meetings are held on the last Thursday of each
month and are open to the public.
Conservation boards also help educate local residents about the natural world in
which we live.
County conservation boards have been created in all of Iowa's 99 counties and
are governed by Chapter 350 of the Code of Iowa.
When traveling, look for the "Arrowhead" transportation directional sign which
will direct you to one of these fine conservation areas.
