Mission: 
Named for Iowa-born conservationist Aldo Leopold, the center was established by the Iowa Legislature in 1987 to conduct research on the environmental and socioeconomic impacts of farming practices, to help develop profitable farming systems that preserve the productivity and quality of natural resources and the environment. It works with Extension and Outreach to share its findings with the agricultural community and the public.
