Sara Lubinski, an American landscape painter, recently wrote a blog post about one of our favorite northeastern Iowa natural areas: the Upper Iowa River.

After spending a day with INHF staff member Brian Fankhauser, Lubinski writes that she began to truly appreciate the vast natural beauty Iowa has to offer.

“My fascination with the Upper Iowa, first with the visual beauty and interest in this exceptional resource, has now extended to reading the historical and scientific perspectives, and learning that the river that has served humans for centuries is now in need of our care,” said Lubinski in a blog post.

Lubinski has painted a number of beautiful scenic landscapes, including a collection of works of the Mississippi Blufflands.
