Good conservation involves wise use of resources. Consideration must be given to long-time use by people of both this and future generations. In some cases good conservation dictates that we make only limited or no use of a particular resource. Examples of the latter are Iowa's few remnant native prairie areas and relatively undisturbed forest areas. Iowa's resources also include its soils, water, woodlots, wildlife, fishes, and geological, paleontological and historical sites. Availability of Iowa resources for future use will depend on how we manage to use or abuse them today.
