Governor Tom Vilsack helped kick off a new conservation campaign called "Conservation Milestones at the Millennium." The kickoff was held in conjunction with a riparian demonstration field day held recently at the vonLackum/Mack farm in Grundy County. The Grundy County event was the first of 10 statewide events, each celebrating a different conservation milestone. The statewide campaign will celebrate conservation achievements on Iowa's private lands, while raising awareness that more can be done. At the Grundy County milestone, special recognition was given to the 100,000 acres of conservation buffers that are now improving water quality and wildlife habitat in Iowa.
