Polk County Conservation

PROVIDING CITIZENS OF POLK COUNTY WITH QUALITY OUTDOOR RECREATION, CONSERVATION EDUCATION, AND LONG-TERM PROTECTION OF POLK COUNTY’S NATURAL HERITAGE.

The Polk County Conservation Board, known as PCCB, was created by the voters of Polk County in 1956 to acquire, develop, and maintain areas devoted to conservation and public recreation.

Based on the landmark 1955 County Conservation Law passed by the Iowa State Legislature, the 99 county conservation boards in Iowa have developed one of the most successful conservation programs in the United States. It is impossible to imagine what Polk County would be like without a Conservation Board.

The 21 park and wildlife areas managed today by PCC (Polk County Conservation) are visited by more than 2.4 million people each year. These public recreation areas cover 14,000+ acres in the state’s most populous county. Throughout the past decade, PCC has devoted increasingly greater resources toward environmental education for Polk County residents.

*We (GOF) are incredibly grateful for the support of donors who create funds for a specific purpose with the Foundation. Those donations provide the funding necessary for the us to carry out our purposes. While we are very appreciative of the support, restrictive funds require administrative resources to administer and monitor. Given this, the Foundation has determined that a small portion of all gifts contributed for a specific purpose may be used to defray operating costs of the Foundation. If a donor contributes any amount for a specific purpose, the donor shall be deemed to have consented to an allocation of 10% of the amount for administrative expenses of the Foundation. This policy shall be effective for all gifts contributed after the date of its adoption, as of January 22, 2014.
