From its inception, the League and its members have been advocates for conserving, protecting and enjoying our country’s incredible array of natural resources. Our active engagement coupled with a practical approach to problem solving has made a difference from town halls to the halls of Congress for 90 years. The Advocacy section of this Web site provides the tools, information, and other resources you need to affect public policy — from the nation's capital to your home town.
Key Issues to Take Action on Now! Read about critical conservation issues that we need your help with now.
Conservation Priorities: Every two years, a new Congress is sworn in. Every two years, the Izaak Walton League sets an agenda for conservation challenges that require action at the national and state levels – and works with our members across the country to achieve the goals we set. Some of these goals are new. Some are ongoing. All require persistence and a collaborative approach.
Testimony on Federal Funding Priorities: Each year, Congress develops appropriations bills that fund government agencies and programs. This process provides the League with the opportunity to weigh in on its priorities across a range of issues.
