Benton County Conservation (BCCB) welcomes you to our quiet and serene natural areas, hiking and river trails, and
campgrounds offer outstanding recreational opportunities.
The (BCCB) also provides conservation assistance to local residents, and naturalist environmental education to our local schools. 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. We are also building a new nature center as seen to the right.
