Duration   2h 30m

Event Hosted by the Des Moines Chapter of the Izaak Walton League

Join the Des Moines Ikes Tuesday, February 19th as Don Arnosti, Minnesota Division Executive Director, talks about the Izaak Walton League’s Upper Mississippi Initiative. Don describes it this way: " Our goals are community-driven dialogue and actions to achieve clean water for all. We are not talking about what the law requires, rather, we are talking about achieving what we all want and deserve: clean water. How can we work together to achieve that? Soil health practices that build farm fertility and productivity offer one such pathway."

This will also be the Des Moines Ikes special Farmer Appreciation Night, an opportunity to share our appreciation for our partners in agriculture that support us and allow the Ikes to access their land for hunting, fishing, trapping, hiking and other outdoor activities. Each Des Moines Ikes member can bring up to two farmer guests who will then be treated to a FREE delicious dinner with all the trimmings! Admission is free for the program beginning at 7, and doors open at 5:30 with dinner available at member prices. Bring friends and family to learn more! If you plan on joining us for dinner please call Carolyn at 515-244-3773.
