About Ikes

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.

Open to all Members, 8am to 8pm

(Or sunset, when earlier)

Location

We're located on 42nd Street NE, west of Edgewood Road;

About 2.5 miles West from I-380.

Committee Updates

The 4H 3D archery fundraiser was a sucess.  The 4H group may want to use Ike's as their home base.  Good news for all.

The committee is looking to change the configuration of the current turning target system, perhaps reducing the number of available positions, to make more room in the range for other activities.

Two beehives have been set up and loaded with bees.  The bees appear to be rebounding, and seem to be doing well.  We now have four hives up and running.

Two Monarch butterfly  enclosures have been set up and milkweed and other tasty plants have been added.  The two sites will be  "planted" with butterfly goodies later this month.

Construction is underway -- The gravel is gone, and concrete with embedded heat pipe has been poured.  Thank you Venture Crew.  Sheet metal work for the new ventilation system is underway.  Look for reopening of a new indoor range coming this fall.

The ability of members to use the trap range any time (with proper safety training on the throwers) has been well-received.  The honor system of payment seems to be working well.  The trap ranges are here for your enjoyment.  If you need the safety briefing to use the equipment, contact the committee below.
