Watch for the Iowa Conservation Team tents along this year’s RAGBRAI route! Free ice water, bananas, and conservation-themed postcards for riders to fill out will be provided. Riders who visit the tent Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will have the opportunity to pick up some milkweed seed balls to toss out along the ride and have a lasting impact on the pollinators in Iowa courtesy of Milkweed Matters.
The Iowa Conservation Team includes the Iowa Chapter of the Soil & Water Conservation Society, Conservation Districts of Iowa and Soil and Water Conservation Districts, the Iowa Department of Agriculture & Land Stewardship and the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Milkweed Matters joins the Iowa Conservation Team on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
