The Ida County Conservation Board’s (ICCB) mission is to acquire, maintain, and make available to the residents of the county: parks, recreational areas, playgrounds, wildlife, and other conservation areas; to encourage conservation of natural resources; and to promote and preserve the health and welfare of the people.
In addition, the ICCB owns and manages two small tracts of native prairie called the Douglas School Grounds and Fairview Cemetery. ICCB also manages Washta Access, a 50 acre river access area with a parking lot and concrete boat ramp.
The ICCB has an active Environmental Education Program that is based in the Conservation Center. Our naturalist offers preschool age programs, senior programs, public programs, and tailor made programs for area schools, civic groups, and organizations.
The Conservation Center, Depot, CCRA Lodge, Cabins, and picnic areas are all available to reserve for events. The camp sites are available on a first come, first serve basis.
