Conservation related books

Asked December 15, 2018, 12:33 PM EST

My grandson is very interested in conservation and this semester took a conservation related class at Muscatine Community College. I'd like to purchase a conservation related book for him for Christmas. Would you suggest some especially if they pertain to Iowa specifically. I greatly appreciate any help you can give me.

That is a great idea! I am attaching a link to the conservation materials that we have available through our Iowa State University Extension and Outreach store. These are not books but more publications that are available on the various topics of conversation. https://store.extension.iastate.edu/ProductList?Keyword=conservation&S=0&A=0&F=0

Here is another link to a group suggesting books from the Iowa Conservation Education Coalition. Most of these are for younger kids but not all so I included this link. http://iowaee.org/books/

https://www.iowadnr.gov/Things-to-Do/Iowa-Outdoors-Magazine This is a magazine from the Iowa DNR if he is interested in this topic.

http://www.inhf.org/about-us/publications/ This is from the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation. It gives some publication suggestions.

I hope these suggestions help!
