2017 Loess Hills & Heritage Week: An Invitation
Western Iowa’s Loess Hills & Heritage Planning Committee is pleased to announce that on August 24, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds proclaimed September 23 through October 1, 2017, Loess Hills and Heritage Week. The Committee, which represents public and private parks, conservation boards, and historical societies throughout Pottawattamie, Mills, Fremont, Harrison, Woodbury, Monona and Plymouth Counties, along with the Golden Hills Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) organization and Western Iowa Tourism, has been working with grassroots organizations in recent months to compile a long list of special activities and sites for visitors to experience the rare fall beauty and historic and cultural richness of the Hills. More information about Loess Hills Week and the Loess Hills themselves can be found at http://www.visitloesshills.org/loess-hills--heritage-week.html, or by simply Googling “Loess Hills and Heritage Week.” That website also provides information on the special Loess Hills Poster Contest that is being offered for youth K-12.

The Loess Hills region includes some of Iowa’s most precious cultural, historic and natural resources. This unique geological formation spans seven counties along Iowa’s western edge and into counties of northern Missouri, and is found in similar form in only one other place in the world: the Yellow River Region in China. The distinctive geological and topographic features of the hills, the extensive natural grasslands and forests and the many archaeological sites there create a treasure for the region. Loess Hills Week will be an opportunity to experience and enjoy these hills, and to learn more about them and their special plants, animals, geology and pioneer and Native American history. We invite communities, organizations and individuals to join us in this landmark celebration.
