Who We Are
On a hot June afternoon in 2012, a small group of concerned citizens gathered at a local coffee shop in Ames to discuss the need to enhance outdoor recreation, education and conservation in Story County. In the course of this discussion, we agreed that additional local investments in the natural resources of Story County are essential for providing these opportunities for this and future generations. As a result of this meeting, a working group formed the not-for-profit organization, the Outdoor Alliance of Story County.
With the founding of the Outdoor Alliance of Story County, Story County joins the other two thirds of the counties in Iowa that already have one or more tax deductible groups that can work with their conservation boards. These groups have created more open space, outdoor recreation and education opportunities. The same can be done in Story County with your support too. Our hope is that you will join in this effort.
