1000 Friends of Iowa

Who We Are

Founded in 1998, we are a statewide membership-based organization focused on land use issues. The mission of 1000 Friends of Iowa is to unite Iowans in efforts to: · Protect farmland and natural areas · Revitalize our neighborhoods, towns, and cities · Improve the quality of life for future generations

What We Do

We involve and engage everyday Iowans and decision- and policy-makers on issues related to land use, transportation, sustainable and equitable development, and climate change. We also have a successful awards program that recognizes communities and projects that utilize smart growth principals and moving us to a more sustainable future.
