League DirectionThe foundation of the Ikes since our inception has been the wise stewardship of our land and resources. Never was that clearer than at the 2016 IWLA National convention held in Stevens Point WI.IWLA members from across the county came together to answer the question: what do we want the League to be known for?From the 20 small group discussions one theme was repeated over and over again - clean water. With the lack of clean being found across the country it was with a sense of necessity we recommitted ourselves to the importance of improving the monitoring of this natural resource. With that commitment the Clean Water Challenge was born.
We encourage every member and every chapter in Iowa to join the efforts of fellow Ikes as we challenge ourselves to monitor 100,000 steams nationwide by 2022.Your support could range from talking about clean water with your neighbors to starting a stream monitoring group at your chapter or in your community.Take a few moments today to show your support by going to www.iwla.org and join the Clean Water Challenge. As the plans for this important program are developed you will be the first to receive information on the next steps in this effort, how you can help and tips for taking action in your community.
