"As a lifelong Iowan, this tapestry of science, history, and personal stories moved me to think about our changing climate and my own actions. While many of our current circumstances seem dire, Connie and the amazing team of contributors gave me hope by shining a bright light on the path forward."--Joe McGovern, president, Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation
"This dynamic history of Iowa's water, soil, and air, paired with specific ideas for preserving and protecting our natural resources, is an excellent text for teachers and students studying environmental issues."--Barbara Ehlers, Upper Iowa University

"Tending Iowa's Land is inspiring, as it is filled with examples of Iowans working to restore native plants, animals, and resources. May a host of other landowners join them--and the impressive group of academics and other professionals in this book--in leading our way to a resilient, regenerative future."--Teresa Opheim, director, Climate Land Leaders

"A must read for all Iowans."--Daryl Smith, former director, Tallgrass Prairie Center
