Conservation Partners Program

Partners Membership Program

Story County Conservation Partners is a membership program, which was started in 1996 by a group of concerned citizens who wanted to find new ways to support conservation efforts in Story County. Join Today!

Theresa Perry, Joy. 1st place Connecting People and RecreationPartners has three goals:

  • To develop a network of supporters and volunteers.
  • To increase public awareness, information, and appreciation for Story County parks, natural areas, programs, and activities.
  • To secure supplemental financial resources to help Story County Conservation (SCC) achieve its mission.

Supporting Conservation

Fiscal year 2023 was a hit with our Partners numbers reaching the highest ever, at just over $40,000! We challenge you to make this happen again, so this year we have set the bar even higher. Our current goal is $45,000. All monies received from memberships in FY24 will help purchase the Deppe property, consisting of 127 acres to the immediate south of McFarland Park. This property is truly a gem, and you can help protect it.
