Who We Are

    What is the Izaak Walton League of America Endowment?

    One of the Endowment's main objectives has been the protection of unique areas for the preservation, use and enjoyment of future generations.  Some of these acquisitions are donated outright to federal and state governments.  The largest part of the Endowment's acquisitions, however, are resold to the U.S. Forest Service and the National Park Service, at cost or less, to become part of the nation's parks, forests and public recreation areas.

    The Endowment more recently has place increasing emphasis on youth and conservation education programs, providing funding for youth conferences and educational activities.  Over 31,000 students in Oregon recently participated in the Endowment's Save Our Streams program.

    As the American public awakens and reacts to current environmental problems-- the energy crisis, threats to our once abundant wildlife, endangered species, and the need for greater protection of our parks and public lands-- the existence and action programs of The Izaak Walton League of America Endowment take on far-reaching importance.
