About Me The Izaak Walton League of America (IWLA) was founded in 1922 "to save outdoor America for future generations. " Named for 17th-century English angler-philosopher Izaak Walton who wrote "The Compleat Angler," the IWLA organized the nation's first water pollution inventory in 1927 and helped pass the first federal water pollution contol act in the 1940s. Water quality is still the top priority for "the Ikes," and the DeKalb County IWLA takes a special interest in protecting Cedar Creek, one of Indiana's outstanding small rivers and part of the watershed of the St. Joseph River
The DeKalb County Chapter was formed in 1971 in response to local concerns about air pollution and the felt need for a county park system. The DeKalb County Chapter provides special judges and awards for the annual Northeast Indiana Tri-State Regional Science Fair at Tri-State University in Angola for projects related to conservation and ecology.

The DeKalb County Chapter, IWLA, meets the third Tuesday of each month at Auburn's Eckhart Public Library, 603 S. Jackson St., at 6:30 p.m.
