Abstract

In Iowa, practically all of the swamp land and many of the smaller lakes with which the early pioneers were familiar have been drained and there agricultural crops are grown. Whether the greatest economic benefit may be derived from appropriating for agricultural purposes such a small proportion of the land as lake beds represent, or by conserving and developing their natural resources is a subject for consideration. With one exception (that of Wall Lake in Wright County), Little Wall Lake is the only lake of any size within an area with radius of at least fifty miles, and in view of its natural resources, it might well be preserved.
