“Dedicated to the Conservation of Our Natural Resources”

 

The Henry County Conservation Department is located in the beautiful Southern Drift Plain of southeast Iowa. The Skunk River traverses Henry County creating two very distinct topographies. Rich agricultural land is found in the northern region of the county, while rolling timbered hills dominate the southern region. Henry County is nationally renowned for its White-tailed Deer and Wild Turkey populations, not to mention its diverse prairies and wildflowers. The Henry County Conservation Department manages 12 individual parks, recreation areas and wildlife areas encompassing 819 acres.
