A family from Florida is being honored today for donating land in southeast Iowa. Clemencia and Martin Nolan will be among those recognized during the "Gift to Iowa's Future" ceremony in Des Moines. The Nolans donated a portion of their Iowa property's value through a bargain sale. The 160 acres of wetland are near a tributary of the English River and are enrolled in the USDA Wetland Reserve Program. The property will be funded and managed by the conservation boards of Washington, Keokuk and Iowa Counties.
