Iowa Conservation Partnership Day


Annually, Conservation Districts of Iowa provides Districts and Commissioners with a Legislative Toolbox. The Legislative Toolbox is designed to assist with reaching out to legislators, holding local legislative district events and informing them of the need for funding to continue the important conservation work being done by districts.
