Abstract

The State Conservation Commission is honored today to participate in this Centennial Program of the Iowa Academy of Science. It was a quarter of a century ago that the vision of such men of 8Cience as Dr. Macbride, Professor Shimek, Dean Nagler and Professor Pammel gave inspiration and direction to the creation of a State Board of Conservation. Later, in the early 30's, this Board was merged with the Fish and Game Commission, together forming the present Conservation Commission. Under the leadership of Mr. Jay Darling, a member of the former State Fish and Game Commission, the Iowa 25-year Conservation Plan was conceived, and under State legislation made available. It is this Plan which first recommended the preservation of a large prairie area.
