Story County Conservation manages over 35 hundred acres of parks and natural areas and takes an active role in developing and managing wildlife habitat throughout the county.  Our mission is “to enhance the quality of life for all citizens of Story County by wisely managing the natural resources, by providing recreational and leisure opportunities, and by educating citizens to be wise caretakers of our natural environment.”

We hope you enjoy and treasure these areas!
