The Iowa Games was first introduced to the state in 1987 when the Summer Iowa Games was held in Ames. Today, over 13,000 athletes participate in 60+ sports at the Olympic-style sports festival during July. In 1992 the Games expanded to include the Winter Iowa Games in Dubuque and Cedar Rapids.

Conservation Planning - The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is the U.S. Department of Agriculture's principal agency for providing conservation technical assistance to private landowners, conservation districts, tribes, and other organizations. NRCS delivers conservation technical assistance through its voluntary Conservation Technical Assistance Program (CTA). CTA is available to any group or individual interested in conserving our natural resources and sustaining agricultural production in this country.
Draft Iowa Conservation Practice Standards and Technical Notes - Iowa's updated or newly developed practice standards and technical notes are available for public comment for 30 days.
Ecological Sciences - NRCS uses many science-based disciplines in helping people help the land. This inter-disciplinary approach to natural resources conservation is revealed through these disciplines and related technical references and tools.
Electronic Field Office Technical Guide (eFOTG) - Technical guides are the primary scientific references for NRCS. They contain technical information about the conservation of soil, water, air, and related plant and animal resources. Technical guides used in each field office are localized so that they apply specifically to the geographic area for which they are prepared. These documents are referred to as Field Office Technical Guides (FOTGs).
Engineering - The Iowa NRCS Engineering staff is comprised of agricultural and civil engineers, geologists, and engineering technicians that provide innovative, economical, and timely services to NRCS staff, conservation partners and private landowners. We provide planning, design, and construction services to solve problems related to soil erosion, water quality, agricultural waste management, and wetland restoration. We invite you to view our Iowa NRCS Engineering Web Page to locate the tools and information to solve your conservation engineering issues. Dell inspiron 3000 drivers for windows 10.
NR2003 Iowa - Late Model Mod for NR2003 racing @ IOWA day. Richie would win the race but Chuck would take the spring All American title at Bullring Motorsports. It's a 1/4 or 1/5-mile dirt track inside a basketball/hockey arena in RSR Town. I made an arena awhile back, but never finished it. This one is so much better! Works good with Midgets, Non Wing Sprint Cars, and of course, Wedge Karts! A special thank you to the DTR2 community for the billboards, Lucas Oil bottle, and Rockstar can! On race day, Lopez would roll off the field starting 11th while starting last was the unsponsored #88 Chevrolet of Davis Sylvester. A clear day in Georgia gave the crowd a great chance to watch the drivers of the ARCA Truck Series compete as two cautions would force the race to be extended by the Green, White, Checkered(GWC) rule.
Geospatial Technology Support - This site was developed to provide technical support to NRCS staff that are using geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS), mobile computers, and associated geospatial technologies.
Iowa Conservation Practice Standards - Standards are available under Section IV of the electronic Field Office Technical Guide.
Soils Program - The Iowa NRCS Soils Program provides quality soil, geographic, and resources information, products, and services to internal and external customers.
State Technical Committee - Per section 1446 of the 1990 Farm Bill, the Iowa USDA established a technical committee to provide advice for technical considerations and technical guidelines necessary to implement conservation provisions of USDA legislation. The committee also helps assure that Civil Rights requirements in Program Delivery are met. The NRCS State Conservationist chairs the committee.
