What We Do

Through public presentations, workshops, media coverage, and meeting with local citizens groups, we work to empower Iowans by offering the education and tools they need to further the mission of 1000 Friends of Iowa.

We work to engage Iowans by providing information, assisting with research, offering advice and providing tools for grass-roots organizing as they become involved in local land use issues.

We strive to effect local, state, and federal public policy by monitoring legislation, encouraging Iowans to act when an important issue arises, and educating policymakers about the economic, social, and environmental benefits of responsible land use.
