Loess Hills of Western Iowa - The Fragile Giants.

Will they become a National Parks Icon or will they disappear 
from the Iowa landscape? Only time will tell. But time could be
running out on this unique land formation.
It is time that we stop the degradation of this unique ecosystem
and go forward with the preservation process of this area.

Lets work together to make the Loess Hills of Iowa a National 
Icon for all to enjoy, experience and to learn about.
