Heritage Hills

Provide uninterrupted wildlife habitat and public recreation space in Madison and Clarke Counties.

Heritage Hills is an expansive property of remnant prairie, oak savanna and woodland located less than one mile from the Clanton Creek Natural Resource Area in Madison County. Once funded, Heritage Hills will help provide over 2,000 acres of land for public recreation and hunting within 45 minutes of the Des Moines Metro.
