The History of Prairie Rivers of Iowa
Prairie Rivers of Iowa was founded in 2001 and initially affiliated with the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service. This provided services in Boone, Hardin, Hamilton, Marshall, Story, and Webster Counties. Now an independent nonprofit organization, it has expanded its programs and services across Iowa.
A combination of individual and corporate donations, grants and state contracts, fees for support and training services, and sales of log and other products funds the programs.
This organization defines conservation as the protection, management, and restoration of natural resources. This is for current public benefit and sustainable social and economic utilization.
