Each year, Iowa Rivers Revival presents the “River Town of the Year” Award to an Iowa river community that demonstrates a commitment to reclaiming the waterfront. The award highlights a city or town’s outstanding work to enhance connections to its river, using it as an anchor for economic development, recreation, and ecological practices, as well as addressing some of the challenges and solutions related to water quality.
We are so excited to announce that on March 16th, we will present the 2018 award to Elgin! Elgin, along with great partners at the Fayette County Conservation, Northeast Iowa RC&D, and the Turkey River Recreational Corridor, has embraced the Turkey River and its surrounding area!
Stay tuned for more information on the upcoming celebration!
