Polk City Cemetery

In early January the trustees of the Polk City Cemetery agreed to enter into talks with the Polk County Conservation Board with the intent that the PCCB would begin maintenance of the prairie in the cemetery and the trustees would drop their plans to expand burial sites into the prairie. 
Many conservation groups and private citizens wrote letters to the trustees and expressed outrage and dismay at their proposal to destroy the cemetery.  We collectively are overjoyed at the apparent outcome of this situation.  Still ahead are some negotiations and details but at this point we are quite confident that the prairie will become the domain of those who appreciate Iowa's prairie heritage.
Thanks to all who wrote or other wise worked toward this positive outcome.

President, Iowa Prairie Network
