“Providing a peaceful retreat for visitors where natural, scenic and historical resources come together to create a living classroom to explore, learn, and foster an appreciation for our natural world.”

Iowa’s county conservation system is truly one of a kind, with each of 99 counties funding a conservation board within its county government. Since its inception in 1969, the Dickinson County Conservation Board has had a passion for caring for the environment and helping create a passion for nature within residents and visitors.

Take a walk through one of our 10 county areas. Visit the Dickinson County Nature Center and Pollinator Paradise. Play a round on the Okoboji Gold Disc Golf Course. Watch the Okoboji Osprey on the live nest camera each spring and summer.

Whatever you do, just get outside. Love this place. Love the outdoors. Love the Iowa Great Lakes area.

You won’t regret it.
