Community Initiatives

Both the Peosta and Calmar campuses of Northeast Iowa Community College have implemented community initiatives supporting sustainable conservation and education for their students.

The Peosta Outdoor Learning Lab was created in 2006 and consists of a wildlife habitat and native vegetation east of the campus. The goals of the Outdoor Learning Lab include utilizing native plants in a demonstrative setting, educating students and the community about those native plants, reducing run-off and improving water quality and providing a habitat for wildlife and restoring the Mississippi flyaway.

Located on the Calmar campus, the sustainable prairie was reintroduced as an educational tool as well as a way to reduce energy costs.
