Iowa’s Legacy

Iowa’s legacy depends on clean water, productive agricultural soils, and thriving wildlife habitats so all Iowans can enjoy the splendor of our state. The Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation Trust Fund, created by an overwhelming majority of Iowa voters in 2010, is a permanent and constitutionally protected funding source to ensure these natural spaces are preserved for generations to come. Now is the time to fund the Trust during the 2015 legislative session. Join Iowa’s Water and Land Legacy coalition today because it’s our responsibility, it’s our time, and it’s our legacy.  Contact your local legislator today.
