Master Conservationist Program

Iowa's Master Conservationist Program logoPlanting the seeds of conservation in Iowa

The Master Conservationist Program is a collaborative program offered by ISU Extension and Outreach, County Conservation Boards, and local conservation leaders and professionals. The intensive curriculum is developed to equip Iowans interested in natural resource conservation with the knowledge and skills necessary to make informed decisions about natural resources and to become local leaders and educators. Master Conservationists are individuals that share an interest in the sustainability of Iowa's natural resources and in becoming better stewards of those resources.

The curriculum has recently been revised and modernized and will be rolled out on a larger scale in 2019. If you are interested in additional information about the program and future course offerings, please contact us or reach out to your local county extension office to express your interest in a local offering.
