Shelby County Conservation is located in southwest Iowa and is home to the Manteno Park and Nishna Bend Recreation area and Elk Horn Creek Recreation Area. The Shelby CCB manages 10 individual parks, natural areas and recreation areas encompassing some 712 acres around the county. Staff members take an active role in developing and managing wildlife habitat in county areas and secondary roadsides. From providing nest boxes for blue birds, kestrels, and Canada geese, to planting trees, shrubs, and native grasses for wildlife food and shelter, these activities provide valuable habitat for both game and non-game wildlife species. Staff members also develop recreational outlets for the citizens of Shelby County. This involves camping facilities and hiking trails as well as places to hunt and fish. This includes park maintenance and development, and officer duties to keep our parks safe for visitors.
