Greetings from the Loess Hills Alliance!

The Loess Hills Alliance's mission is to "Protect special natural and cultural resources of Iowa’s Loess Hills while ensuring economic viability and promoting awareness."

The LHA is a nonprofit organization established by Iowa Code 161D in 1999 as a part of the Loess Hills Development and Conservation Authority. The Hungry Canyons Alliance was also authorized under this authority. Funds are directed to both non-profit organizations through the Iowa legislature. State funds are used to match and fund projects under the discretion of each organization.

The Loess Hills region includes some of Iowa’s most precious cultural, historic and natural resources. Since the 1980’s, two nationally significant intrinsic qualities have been verified in the region— natural areas and Prehistoric cultural resources. The unique geological and topographic features of the hills, the extensive natural and semi -natural grasslands and forests and the many archaeological sites found in this one geologic landform create a treasure for the region. More than 32,500 acres of land are either in public ownership or public protection.

In 2016, LHA helped promote economic development, protect and restore many acres of land in the Loess Hills. Click here to download our most recent Annual Report and learn about our work in 2016.
