        Working Landscapes - Loess Hills

        The issues facing working landscapes are especially evident in the fragile Loess Hills of western Iowa.

Loess is a deposit of fine, yellowish-gray, clay-like sediment which can be found from north central Europe to eastern China and in the American Midwest.
