Who We Are
The Izaak Walton League was founded in 1922 to conserve outdoor America for future generations. The League's 54 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.
The Mighty Mississippi is an artery America can’t live without. It’s a river of recreation. It’s a river of navigation. From locks and dams to hunting and fishing, this is Your Mississippi. Official selection of Flyway Film Festival.
The Scenic Route
The Upper Mississippi River is a jewel of nature, providing wildlife habitat, outdoor recreation, and a way of life for communities across Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois.
The Minnesota Division of the Izaak Walton League has played a leading role in the protection of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness from the 1920s until the present-day fight to stop sulfide mining on the borders of the BWCA. The IKE's leadership has been based on partnerships with other organizations and the role played by activists who were eminent biologists and ecologists.
