2017 Sweet Corn Feed a Hit!A big thank you to everyone that attended the Des Moines Izaak Walton League Sweet Corn Feed on Tuesday the 18th! Right around 543 hungry tummies left happy and we were proud to serve you!

More thanks are due for making it happen: To Jim Caliguiri for chairing the committee and working the corn cooker all day; To Bob Jackson for coming in at 6:30 to setup the canopies, and re-trim the yard: And of course to the volunteers, shuckers, cooks, servers, ticket sellers, and Carolyn’s super kitchen staff for all their hard work!

Let’s do this again next year! Click for pictures!

Tour the Proposed Des Moines Izaak Walton Education Center Now!


We’ve been talking about building an education center for some time, but now you can see a special preview! Not only will it be Des Moines’ premier gun range, open to all, but it will be so much more!

The Izaak Walton Educational Center will be a unique facility with many rooms for many purposes. A Conference Center, Classroom and Testing Facility, a Retail Shop and Snack Bar, and of course a state of the art Gun Range and Qualifying Area!

YOU can help make it a reality and yes, corporate sponsorships are available! Contact Bud Hartley to find out more.

Special thanks to Bryce Jarrett for video production!
