Partnership

Riverland Conservancy strives to conduct its activities and operations in partnership with a wide range of organizations, including local, state, and federal agencies, conservation groups, and the private sector.

  • Wetland and Prairie Restoration

    • Riverland Conservancy works with numerous organizations to accomplish our restoration goals. With the help of our partners we have completed almost 1000 acres of wetland and prairie restoration. Our partners offer assistance in a variety of ways including donations of money, materials, and services.
  • Ice Age Park and Trail Foundation

    • With four miles of the National Scenic Ice Age Trail traversing the Merrimac Preserve, we work closely with the Ice Age Trail Alliance members and the National Park Service to maintain the trail.  Check  out the Ice Age Trail Alliance web site for more information about the Ice Age Trail.
  • Important Bird Area

    • The Lansing Preserve is part of region considered extremely important as a major migration corridor.  Riverland Conservancy is working with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Iowa Audubon, US Fish and Wildlife Service and others to maintain the diverse nesting habitat of the region.
    • Riverland Conservancy has partnered with the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation to help protect sensitive bluff habitat along the Mississippi River.
  • Manley Creek

    • Riverland Conservancy works with organizations such as Trout Unlimited, WDNR, and Sauk County Conservation to restore and maintain Manley Creek and Parfrey’s Glen Creek.  These two cold water streams provide habitat for the native Brook Trout.  Restoration efforts have lead to a stabilization of the stream banks and an increase in the trout population.
  • Allamakee County Conservation Board

    • The Allamakee County Conservation Board is undertaking construction of their Education and Visitor Center in Lansing, Iowa.  Riverland Conservancy is working the the conservation board to support the development of materials and programs for their education focus.
