Mid-America Council seeks buyer for Little Sioux Scout Ranch

The Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation is campaigning to raise $2 million by Dec 31, 2022 to purchase the almost 1,800 acres of land for wildlife habitat and recreational use.

The ranch, spread across the western slope of the Loess Hills, has given Scouts a place to hike, canoe, fish and camp for more than 50 years.

The Mid-America Council ...wanted to find a buyer who could do three things: open the property to the public; maintain the memorial to the four boys who died in the tornado; and honor and share the history of the ranch as a Scout camp.
