We are a conservation board which manages several properties and about 1500 acres. We have one main location, Lake Iowa Park, and several other locations. We provide public hunting, fishing, birding, camping, hiking, swimming and boating for Iowa County, Iowa. We are always in the field, working outside on projects from campsite construction to prairie burns and educational programs. We do similar work as Iowa DNR, US Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service if you want a similar, more familiar organization to compare us to.
Our target audience is everyone - people who want to know more about the outdoors to those with experience in outdoor recreation. This includes families, individuals and people of all ages. Currently our main group of people are campers and fishers at our Lake Iowa Park location. However, we want people to know the whole county contains several properties for outdoor recreation.
We currently have two "logos" which we use on our business cards/letter heads. They incorporate our Lake Iowa Park and an Oak Leaf on one and the other is simply a drawing of the Iowa County Nature Center - which is located at Lake Iowa Park. We want to show that when you think of Iowa County Conservation there is Lake Iowa Park, and more. Also, we added our current badge for our two law enforcement officers - this does not work because it has a pheasant on it and is very not specific to our work. The new logo will be put on our badges, however don't worry about the shape, our badge shape can change.
Below in additional notes, we have included what we are wanting/looking for and what we no we do not want.
