Abstract

The project explored the effects of Iowa's burgeoning biofuels economy on existing and future land conservation and preservation efforts.

Key Question

What conservation plans and technical tools exist (or are needed) to better define and target environmental benefits from conservation programs?

Findings

Participants in these discussions were skeptical about existing state or federal natural resources plans and the technical tools used to develop such plans. They stated that land use planning needs to be a local, transparent, participatory process in order to earn public confidence and support in Iowa.
