After its founding, one of the chapter's first activities was to establish an Iowa Conservation Award of Merit. This award, provisions for which was a part of our original constitution, was designed to recognize a living individual for his or her contributions to conservation in Iowa.

In 1966, the first Iowa Conservation Hall of Fame Award winners were named. This new award was to recognize national and local conservationists in all walks of life. The individuals named must have had some association with Iowa in their careers, and the award may be given posthumously. 

Previous Award Winners can be found under the History Tab.
