Summary The Iowa state preserves system was created in 1965; a decade later, thirty preserves had been dedicated, including "six native prairies, a native White Pine stand, the state's only Sphagnum bog, a Balsam Fir stand, some of the oldest exposed rock outcrops in the world, an ancient fort, a fen, several Indian mound groups and a historical cemetery." This new guide to all ninety Iowa state preserves-biological, geological, archaeological, historical, and scenic-describes the state's most treasured prairies and forests, quartzite outcrops and ice caves, and Indian mounds and wetla.
