Welcome to the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Chapter of the
Izaak Walton League of America

The Izaak Walton League of America is a diverse nationwide group of 40,000+ men and women dedicated to protecting our nation's soil, air, woods, waters and wildlife. Our strength lies in our grassroots, commonsense approach to solving local, regional, and national conservation issues. Our interests span the spectrum of outdoor recreation and conservation activities from angling and birding to stream-monitoring, wildlife photography, skeet & trap, rifle & pistol shooting, archery, and hunting & hunter safety education.

Izaak Walton League members all share one major goal: to protect, use, and sustain America's rich wildlife habitats and their resources to ensure a high quality of life for all people, now and in the future.

The Bethesda-Chevy Chase Chapter of the IWLA manages its 623-acre "Doc Holton" Conservation Farm on Izaak Walton Way, which intersects West Willard Road just south of Poolesville, Maryland. This conservation farm and all areas within it are a living classroom and outdoor recreational facility for the chapter's 1,000+ members and their escorted guests. Certain events throughout the year and our monthly dinner meetings (online calendar) are open to the general public.
