On April 4, 1933, a group of 34 interested citizens met at the Dubuque Library and formed the Dubuque County Conservation Society. Their main object at the time was the preservation of an area called "White Pine Hollow". After this highly successful project many dedicated men and women gave freely of their time spending countless hours on other conservation projects.
The goals of the Dubuque County Conservation Society are to purchase & preserve wildlife habitat and to educate and inform the public.
Conservation Pledge: I give my pledge to save and to faithfully defend from waste, the natural resources of my country, its soil and minerals, its forests, waters and wildlife.
