General Interest Article
During the past 25 years much good conservation work has been done in Iowa. It is now time to re-evaluate existing facilities and services provided for Iowa citizens by the Conservation Commission. It is time to take stock of what we have in relation to existing public needs, and to plan ahead to meet anticipated demands by the people of this state. To decide what to do in the future it is perhaps best to set out existing problems and add a pinch of crystal ball to see what the future might hold. Studies and surveys must be carried out to answer many questions facing us today. A few examples are - To what extent can fish and wildlife resources be utilized to meet hunting and fishing needs? What is the role of fish and wildlife management in meeting these needs? What lands should be used for hunting and fishing in conjunction with other uses? What are the present needs and anticipated demands for forest products in Iowa? What are the responsibilities of various levels of government in planning for and meeting the needs of people for local, area-wide and state-wide outdoor recreation?
