The Iowa Chapter conservation work is involved in ensuring that every Iowa citizen should enjoy and every Iowa child should inherit:

Water you can drink, air you can breathe, rivers and lakes safe for swimming teeming with fish that are safe to eat, and communities free from poisonous waste.

Wild places that provide clean rivers, wildlife habitat, and opportunities to fish, hunt, hike, and learn about the natural world.

Clean energy from local, renewable sources that grow our economy and reduce dependence on dirty fossil fuels.

Active participation in a democracy that ensures our elected officials fairly represent their voters, not polluter's interests.
