Environmental Education


Educating for environmental awareness and responsibility.


The Story County Conservation's Environmental Education Program exists to aid the citizens of Story County in becoming environmentally sensitive, knowledgeable, skilled, and dedicated citizens who are willing to work, individually and collectively, towards the wise use of our natural environment. Additionally, the Environmental Education Program exists to encourage thoughtful use of recreational resources, to minimize human impact on our natural resources, and to promote public understanding and support of the agency's goals and objectives.
