Dubuque Chapter Izaak Walton League Of America

Welcome to the Dubuque Chapter of the IWLA.  We are a Chapter of the National Izaak Walton League of America and are recognized as a 501(c)(3) Non-profit conservation organization.  For more information on the IWLA, see www.IWLA.org. 

We promote conservation of all of our natural resources including: 

Fish and Wildlife

Soils and Agriculture


Woods and Public Lands.

We promote shooting sports such as rifle and pistol, skeet, sporting clays, and trap.  

We work with many local organizations, such as Pheasants Forever, the Dubuque DNR, Ducks Unlimited and many other local groups to promote firearms safety, outdoor knowledge and conservation practices.  Firearm and range safety is a major concern in this day and age, and we pledge to do our part in improving and proliferate these ideals.
