Resources Booklet Series


Iowa’s Nature "...explores the history of the land and life-sustaining soils of our state; the three major ecosystems found here; plant and animal diversity that call those ecosystems, and others, home; and explores some of the people and symbols of Iowa's rich biological, ecological, and cultural diversity." Each article in the Iowa's Nature Series was produced through a collaborative project led by members of the Iowa Association of Naturalists and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. This ten-part article series can be found here:
