IWLA Conservation Policies
This handbook summarizes official positions developed by the Izaak Walton League over almost 90 years of work on conservation issues. These positions were adopted formally as resolutions by League members at annual national conventions. One of the League’s most important goals is to ensure that America’s natural resources are protected, managed, and used to provide long-term quality of life. Our conservation policies expand on this goal and give it meaning as it applies to a variety of conservation issues.
In 2012, resolutions were adopted on crop insurance premium subsidies and conservation, oil and gas drilling, and silica sand mining.
