Why an acorn?
“Mighty oaks from little acorns grow.” – English Proverb
At the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, we’ve learned firsthand that great things can grow from small beginnings. Just as Iowa’s state tree, the oak, grows to be a towering natural marvel from a tiny acorn.
Much like the oak tree, INHF grew from a small group of dedicated individuals to the 7,000-member organization we are today.
Our organization uses the acorn as a logo not only as a reminder of where we’re going but also to recognize where we’ve been. The vibrant greens and golden hues reminiscent of Iowa’s natural beauty inspired our logo’s color palette, perfectly embodying the essence of INHF.
