Welcome to the Maryland Division of the Izaak Walton League of America.

League members in Maryland have long been active in the state, helping secure federal protection for the C&O Canal, clean up the Chesapeake Bay, and acquire state forest and park areas. The Save Our Streams Program, begun in 1969 in Maryland, expanded nationally in 1974. Since then, it has become one of the League's most successful and longest running conservation programs. The division was chartered by the League in 1945.
