Howard County is fortunate to be blessed with an abundance of wildlife and is rich in natural resources. Three major rivers, the Wapsipinicon, Turkey and Upper Iowa, along with Crane Creek, many tributary streams and ponds intermingling through a diversity of woodland, native prairie, and wetlands, all contribute to the creation of the landscape in Howard County.
The Howard County Conservation Board provides the public with almost 2,000 acres of county conservation managed areas, helping to conserve our natural resources and preserve scenic sites so that present and future generations may enjoy them forever. (Click on Iowa map to enlarge.)
