Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation (INHF) is a nonprofit conservation organization that works with private landowners and public agencies to protect and restore Iowa’s land, water and wildlife.

Protection: Iowa is home to diverse landscapes including wetlands, prairies, rivers, lakes, and woodlands. INHF has permanently protected more than 150,000 acres since starting in 1979.

Stewardship: INHF restores native landscapes that are entrusted to us or moving toward public ownership. Along with young conservationists and volunteers, we work to rebuild healthy habitat and diverse lands.

Trails: Trails allow Iowans and visitors to connect to the natural areas around them. Over the past three decades INHF has helped create over 60% of Iowa’s rail-trail network.

Policy: INHF works with both state and federal legislatures to give a voice to Iowa’s natural resources through funding initiatives, important partnerships and political championship.
