Wondering how you can level up your virtual social hour game these days? Iowa Soil and Water Conservation Society is selling pint glasses! Proceeds will support professional development, public service events, and educational opportunities put on by Iowa SWCS.

The pint glasses are made by P&M Apparel, an Iowa company, and so your support helps both the Chapter and the local economy in these tumultuous times. P&M Apparel is a woman-owned, third-generation family business located in Polk City, Iowa.

Order your glass (or two) by June 8th. Shipping is a flat fee per entire order.
