Over the past 100 years, the Izaak Walton League of America has carved out a unique role, promoting hands-on conservation and citizen science while advocating for strong state and national policies to protect our air, water and wildlife.
The League’s approach to conservation is also deeply rooted in the outdoor traditions – hunting, fishing, canoeing and camping – that our founders enjoyed. In communities nationwide, League chapters have been – and remain – a gateway to the outdoors where generations of Americans caught a fish, shot a rifle or took their very first steps to protect the environment.
Looking to the future, we have ambitious goals to get more Americans involved in conservation, citizen science and policy advocacy.
