The Warren County Conservation Board

Conservation boards are local natural resource management and outdoor recreation agencies whose responsibilities are the following: to acquire, develop, maintain and make available public museums, parks, preserves, parkways, playgrounds, recreation centers, forests, wildlife and other conservation areas, to encourage the orderly development and conservation of natural resources and to provide adequate programs of public recreation. Conservation boards also help educate local residents about the natural world in which we live, and administer roadside vegetation management programs. County conservation boards have been created in all of Iowa’s 99 counties and are governed by Chapter 350 of the Code of Iowa.

Our History

On November 5, 1974, Warren County citizens voted to create the Warren County Conservation Board. The Board’s purpose is to encourage a state of harmony between people and the land communities upon which our lives and welfare depend, through programs of conservation, preservation, recreation, and education.
