The Iowa State PF Council was created to coordinate and assist local chapters in their mission to create wildlife habitat, grow youth outreach & education, and habitat improvement. The state of Iowa is divided into 9 Districts. Each District can elect two (2) District Representatives, and as many Alternates as desired, to represent them on the Council. Each District has a maximum 2 votes at each meeting. The Council meets quarterly on the first Sunday in Jan, April, July and Oct. as needed to address issues and land acquisitions throughout the state.
The Iowa Council also created and manages the Iowa Council Trust Fund. Individual Chapters can join the Trust fund by contributing 10% of their annual net banquet funds. The Trust Fund provides grants to member chapters for land acquisition projects and supports special statewide conservation issues such as Buffer Strip Programs, legislative issues, and youth programs.
