WELCOME FELLOW CONSERVATIONISTS!

 

Isaak Walton League Philosophy is to Conserve:

  • Soil
  • Water
  • Air
  • Wildlife

The Loudoun County Chapter of the Izaak Walton League is a local non-profit, conservation chapter  of the Izaak Walton League of America, Inc. (IWLA).

We are dedicated to the promotion of the means and opportunities for educating the public to conserve, maintain, protect and restore the soil, forest, water, air, wildlife and other natural resources of the United States, in Virginia and more specifically in Loudoun County.  Further, we promote the enjoyment and wholesome utilization of those outdoor resources.

Our chapter members are dedicated outdoors people active in local conservation issues.  We maintain a private membership facility on grounds located about six miles south of Leesburg, Virginia.



Sight-In Range Closed for Construction for March 17 - 23, 2008

Monthly Membership Meetings

Come learn more about us at one of our monthly membership meetings.  They are held in the lodge house every second Monday of the month.  Call (703-555-5555) or email info@loudouniwla.org for more details.

 

As part of the capital improvement project it is necessary to close the Sight-In Range for the duration of the flooring project.  Weather permitting, the Sight-In Range committee will move forward with its plan to pour a concrete floor in the bench house.  We will start moving equipment and fixtures as early as March 17, 2008.  With any luck, we expect the construction work to be finished and the concrete will be hard enough that the range can be re-opened by March 23, 2008.

Arbor Day Project to coincide with Virginia's April 25, 2008 holiday celebration
