Using Our Grounds

Getting a Permit for Group Activities

In order to use our Grounds for a group activity a permit must first be received from the Chapter's Liaison Officer. In order to receive a permit, an application must be filled out and mailed to the Liaison Officer at the address located on the permit. If you do not have the means to print out an application please contact Anita Stonebraker at 240-832-0251 or send  an email to You can view our reservations calendar by clicking here.
The application must reach the Chapter Liaison Officer at least two weeks prior to the desired date. The Lois Green-Sligo Chapter, Izaak Walton League of America, Inc. must be notified of any change in plans at least seven days in advance of the planned activity.

Donations (Made Payable to LGS-IWLA) must accompany permit applications. Average Donation of $2 per person, with a minimum of $100 for groups of 50 or less is suggested. Donations will be refunded if notified of cancellation 7 days prior to event. A security deposit of an additional $75 is required. The security deposit will be refunded if, upon inspection, the premises are left as found. Groups larger than 30 will be charged a $20 septic fee (per day) unless porta-johns are provided. If this is the case, our bathrooms will be locked. If porta-johns are provided and the group would still like the use of the bathrooms, the septic fee applies. Trash must be removed by permit holder. Failure to remove your trash will result in the forfeiture of your security deposit. Please provide the donation and the security deposit as separate checks in order to facilitate prompt refunding of the security deposit.
