Mason City, Iowa—Iowa State University Extension and Outreach and County Conservation Boards in Cerro Gordo, Floyd, Franklin, Mitchell and Worth Counties in coordination with ISU Wildlife Extension, and the Iowa DNR is pleased to offer the newly revitalized Iowa Master Conservationist Program in the North Iowa Area this summer. The Iowa Master Conservationist Program gives Iowans hands-on interaction with the diversity of Iowa’s natural resources. The program teaches about wildlife and plant communities, and provides accurate information on a broad range of conservation issues. Ultimately, it provides individuals the resources to make informed, intelligent choices for leading and educating others on a sustainable lifestyle.
 
This program consists of seven face-to-face meetings that will be held in various locations in Floyd, Franklin, Cerro Gordo, Mitchell and Worth Counties. The topics include conservation infrastructure and science, understanding Iowa ecosystems- prairies, forests, watersheds, implementing conservation practices in human dominated landscapes and developing skills to help educate others about conservation practices.
 
The seven face-to-face meetings will be held at various local locations from 6-9 p.m. on July 17, 24, 31, August 7, 14, 21 and 28. Each face-to-face meeting will demonstrate to the participants how conservation programs work in our local area. Space is limited to the first 30 registrants.
