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.”
