Membership Types

All memberships types are the same at the chapter level, with the exception of chapter votes & the number of gate access cards issued.

  • Individual Membership allows for a single adult to become a voting member of the Dragoon Trail Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America. You will also be a member of the Izaak Walton League of America State and National organizations. The Individual membership allows the member and guests to use the facility.
  • Family Membership allows for two adults living in the same household to both become voting members of the Dragoon Trail Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America. They will also be members of the Izaak Walton League of America State and National organizations. The Family membership allows the two named adult members and guests to use the facility.
  • Chapter Only Membership is only available for those that are National and State Life Member, or a member of another chapter in Iowa. Our Chapter Only Membership carries the same benefits of an Individual Membership.
