Welcome to Benton County Conservation! We invite you to explore over 1,500 acres of prairie, wetlands, woodlands, trails and park lands.

The Benton County Conservation Board (BCCB) has been working on preserving Iowa’s future since 1956. The BCCB was one of the first sixteen counties ?in Iowa to devote its resources toward conservation development.  Benton County developed the first man made lake by a county conservation department, “Hannen Lake.”  Since the 1950’s the BCCB has gained 20 properties totaling over 1500 acres which they maintain.

The BCCB provides conservation assistance to local residents, environmental education to our local schools, and public programs.  We can suggest parks, campgrounds or natural areas for you to explore. The BCCB started in 1956 with Hannen Lake park, one of Iowa's first county parks.  Our main office is located ?at Rodgers Park on the far west entrance ?which houses our new nature center.
