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.

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.
