Loess Hills State Forest
Loess Hills State Forest, a gem of Harrison and Monona counties, is comprised of 4 units totaling 11,266 acres. Since its founding in 1986, the state forest has relied on REAP funding for land aquisition, management practices and the construction of a visitors center, scenic overlooks and picnic areas. One of the rarest landscape formations in the world, REAP has been vital to protecting the rough and beautiful features of the Loess Hills since the program's inception.
REAP funding for this project: $1,489,555
Region REAP Support (total): $13,318,509
