This is a brief review of the county conservation program, a new trend in Iowa conservation. The early legal history is traced, and major provisions of the Iowa law are identified. An itemized list indicates the chief uses of newly acquired land by the 62 county boards. Illustrations are given to suggest the relatively unexplored educational and scientific possibilities of this new trend. This applies particularly to botany, archeology, and "nature education."
