Ideals of the Izaak Walton League and its Winchester Chapter:  

The Chapter is formed as a 501C(3) tax-exempt, charitable and non-profit organization that is devoted to the conservation of natural resources in the servicing area of Virginia.  Its service ideals are embodied in the Member 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.
