Wikipedia Page – Argos Izaak Walton League Historic District

The Argos Ikes now has a Wikipedia Page view-able by clicking the following link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argos_Izaak_Walton_League_Historic_District.

The Wikipedia is the free, Internet equivalent of the Encyclopedia. The three images from the Argos Ikes location displayed on the page are also now included in the Wikimedia. We hope to continue to raise awareness about the importance of conservation and promoting our pledge: “To strive for the purity of water, the clarity of air, and the wise stewardship of the land and its resources; to know the beauty and understanding of nature and the value of wildlife, woodlands and open space; to the preservation of this heritage and to man’s sharing in it.”






NPS.GOV Highlights the Argos Chapter of the Izaak Walton League

In October 2011, the Argos Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America was on the agenda of the Indiana Historic Preservation Review Board. The League submitted an application to be considered by the board to be recognized as one of Indiana’s historic places. The submission is available for review on the IN.GOV website here. The Argos Chapter of the IWLA, referred to locally as the ‘Argos Ikes’, was approved to be on the National Register of Historic Places. Being that the original Argos Chapter League formed in the early 1920s, the chapter has deep roots educating the surrounding communities in the importance of conservation. The National Park Service, NPS.GOV, highlighted the Argos Chapter of the Izaak Walton League in one of its weekly highlights. Check-out the highlight available on the NPS.GOV website by clicking here. The publication includes beautiful pictures of the club and one of the ponds in addition to providing information about the history of the local League.
