About Izaak Walton League #67

The Club House
Many people, even members don't really know much about York Izaak Walton #67. We are one chapter of a national organization dedicated to conservation of our environment. Unlike many environmental organizations we understand that conservation means WISE use, not NON use. We support hunting, fishing and shooting as well as all kinds of wildlife projects. We raise fish and pheasants on the grounds. We also do stream restoration and sponsor the York County Envirothon which educates and tests hundreds of students on nature. The ranges and shooting matches are just a small part of what our club is about.
I'll bet a lot of you never even noticed "Lake Tonian". As you drive in the driveway (speed limit 10 mph) it is on the far side of the playground on the other side of the creek, and it is packed with bass, crappies, and bluegills. Members may fish there. Read the sign at the lake for restrictions.

Our chapter has over 1000 members, and has been around over 75 years. There are a lot of different events that you might be interested in. Check out the clubs website at It is undergoing a massive renovation project
