Become A Member

membersFor more than 20 years, the Iowa Environmental Council’s members have been the foundation of our success.

Alone, we are individuals and organizations with unique and important but single voices advocating for Iowa’s environment. Together, we are the Iowa Environmental Council, a coalition amplifying Iowans’ voices to create large-scale, sustainable change that makes Iowa a better place to live, work, explore and enjoy.

Our collaborative, balanced and nonpartisan approach is unique and effective, but it only works with your support and participation.
