Welcome to the Henry County Conservation Department  
Henry County is located in the beautiful Southern Drift Plain of southeast Iowa. The Skunk River traverses Henry County creating two very distinct topographies. Rich agricultural land is found in the northern region of the county, while rolling timbered hills dominate the southern region. Henry County is nationally renowned for its White-tailed Deer and Wild Turkey populations, not to mention its diverse prairies and wildflowers.

Come visit us in pristine southern Iowa!
