We are a local chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America. We are a volunteer-run, privately owned facility located on approximately 40 acres in Linn County, just off 42nd Street in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We are a group of approximately 500 members dedicated to conserve, restore, and promote the sustainable use and enjoyment of our natural resources, including soil, air, woods, waters, and wildlife.
Saturday, October 12, we need volunteers to meet at the Chapter House at 8 AM -- so we can clean up our adopted stretch of Highway 100.
The four beehives appear to be doing well. Unless we have a really rough winter, the bees should do well till next Spring.
Our Chapter raised and and released about 50 Monarch butterflies this past summer.
We have raised the top of the berm at the end of the rifle range several feet by adding more than 14 truckloads of dirt, to prevent stray rounds from heading outside the range.
The concrete blocks at the 100 yard line will soon be replaced with bullet-friendly alternatives, to better protect against ricochets.
People have been using the trap houses on a regular basis. The trap ranges are here for your enjoyment.
Reminder - if something needs attention on the range, contact us so we can take care of it.
If you need the safety briefing to use the equipment, contact the committee below.
