York Chapter #67


Izaak Walton League of America

Jr's host/hatch out little Pheasant Birdies!

​"We had 34 eggs that were incubated.  They started peeping on Sunday, May 5.  By Tuesday evening 1 chick had hatched.  We divided up the eggs and took 19 to the Board of Directors meeting (it was meant to be 20 but in the excitement we miscounted) on Tuesday.  During the BOD two chicks hatched.  We made up 3 brooding set-ups for a few Juniors (Holly, Elizabeth, and David/Jocelyn) and their families to take home and share in the experience.   Of our 34 eggs we ended up having about 15 hatch out, pretty good for a first try.  We plan to hold the chicks at each Juniors house until Mother’s Day evening, when we will transfer them to the Pheasant coop.

 "Here’s a time lapse of the pheasant eggs we hatched. 

IWLA Juniors are our kids..

Ages 8 to 18, our kids are very active! 

Fishing trips, 3D archery shoots, making bird houses,
help in raising trout & pheasants, community service projects
and much more!

Membership is only $20.00 per year.
(this is to allow us to provide National membership to our Juniors)

Meetings are the 3rd Tuesday of the month, 7pm at the IWLA grounds, Clubhouse, lower level.

The York Chapter 67 IWLA Juniors was founded in 1949 by Lester "Les" Krall. Initially an all boys group who in 1950, as their first project, they decided to finance and build the memorial plaza and flag pole that still exists on the club grounds. This is a sacred place that is continued to be used today for a memorial service held every June open meeting.

The Juniors continue to do many things for the club, our community and in the name of conservation. Many Junior members have gone on to be Senior members in the IWLA as well as predominant positions in the community in the PA Fish Commission and in the York County Parks system and more.
