Profiling Iowa’s Conservation Successes

Washington County Wet & Wild Because of Haeffner
Leroy Haeffner retired June 29, 2007, after serving the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) for 27 years, the last 16 as a soil conservationist in Washington County. If you don’t think one person can dramatically alter a landscape, drive around this area of southeast Iowa. Instead of field after field of row crops, you will see an inordinate amount of wildlife habitat, including wetlands, buffers, native prairie plants and grasses, and trees. Much of that can be attributed to Haeffner, who promoted the restoration of wetlands and native prairie throughout his NRCS career; all to improve the soil and attract wildlife to the region.

My dear friend Leroy Haeffner recently retired from a career in soil conservation. Follow the links above to a wonderful story of environmental improvement in SE Iowa.

Leroy loves God. His passion for natural resources springs from that love.

We’re better for it. Thanks, friend!
