Last year, 30 organizations and more than 100 Iowans came together in a snowstorm to let legislators know Iowans value the quality of life and economic benefits that come from protecting our natural resources and supporting outdoor recreation. Now, with a historic opportunity to fund Iowa’s Resource Enhancement and Protection Program at a $25 million level for its 25th anniversary year, members of the Iowa REAP Alliance and Iowa Environmental Council are working together for an even bigger turnout in 2014. Together, we can help “close the deal” for conservation this legislative session! After an uplifting REAP Congress meeting earlier in January brought delegates together from all over the state to support funding for REAP and Iowa’s Water and Land Legacy, March 18 provides a key opportunity to maintain conservation momentum later in the session.
