Prairie Rivers of Iowa met and surpassed many goals in 2015! Strategic plans have helped us focus on our overall direction improving our natural resources in Iowa.
Our goals and strategies create direction for our staff who then take off with unbelievable energy and creativity! Our reward is satisfaction in hard work, meeting or rewarding more of our stakeholder’s expectations, and continuing to grow our knowledge, staff, and reputation throughout our state.
As you review this report, you will see vibrant programs that are serving the Iowa environment while engaging many individuals, businesses, not-for-pro ts, and government in the work. The staff is always asking the question — are we making a difference and creating real change for the good of Iowa’s natural and historical resources? We feel as you review this report we can de nitely answer that question with a YES; we are making a difference.
While 2015 was a year to be proud of, 2016 and beyond hold challenges and new directions for us. Our staff, board, and leadership is up to that task! We remain dedicated to our mission and vision to create a better environment for Iowans while keeping the ecological integrity of our national resources.
