“My vision is to restore the landscape’s natural flood resiliency,” says Larry Weber, “If we can strategically construct farm ponds, wetlands, terraces, and other conservation practices, they can slow the movement of water through the landscape. That will mitigate flood damage for both urban and rural Iowans.”


The Iowa Flood Center team is joining the #Strike4BlackLives initiative that calls on academia to spend Wednesday, June 10, educating themselves and advocating for social justice in their communities.
