Izaak Walton League of America

From hunters to hikers, our members protect America's outdoors through community-based conservation, education, commonsense public policy, and a commitment to strong outdoor ethics.

The Izaak Walton League was formed in 1922 to save outdoor America for future generations. The League's founders, who were avid anglers, named the organization after Izaak Walton, the 17th century author of The Compleat Angler, a classic book about the art and spirit of fishing. We are one of the earliest conservation organizations to set an aggressive course to defend wild America by changing public policy. Almost every major, successful conservation program that America has in place today can be traced directly to a League activity or initiative.

From hunters to hikers, our members protect America's outdoors through community-based conservation, education, commonsense public policy, and a commitment to strong outdoor ethics.
