Abstract

The Iowa Academy of Science at the present time does not have a coordinated conservation program. An examination of the records discloses the fact that it never has had one. The program of the conservation committee as embodied in the recommendations to the Academy in 1945 and 1946 although approved in the annual business meeting each year, has not been incorporated into an operative program by the Academy. A brief resume of the conservation activities of the Academy may prove to be of some value in the discussion of a conservation program for the Academy. According to Swisher's review of the history of the Iowa Academy of Science, "One of the outstanding interests of the Academy and one of the fields in which it had a great deal of influence even in the early years was in the matter of conservation of natural resources of the state." One's first impression is that this stream of influence has been constant since the origin of the Academy in 1875. An examination of the proceedings and other sources of information indicates that on the contrary this influence has had the characteristics of an intermittent stream.
