Tama County Conservation is located in central Iowa and is home to Otter Creek Lake & Park, and the Tama County Nature Center. The Tama CCB manages 14 parks, water recreation accesses, and natural areas about the county, encompassing some 1,102 acres. The Tama County Nature Center is located at Otter Creek Lake and Park. The 5,600 sq. ft. facility is the result of construction phased over nearly two decades. The facility has been made possible through use of non-property tax revenues including grants, donations and fundraisers. The beautiful interactive display room is the centerpiece of the facility and inspires young and old alike to understand, appreciate, and protect the natural world.
