Lois Green-Sligo Chapter, Izaak Walton League of America Charity Profile
The future is in the hands of our children. Therefore the future of conservation is in their hands, as well. With this in mind, the Lois Green-Sligo Chapter has always considered its most critical mission to be the education of Montgomery County’s youth in the importance of conserving our natural resources.
The Chapter’s mission is the continuing effort to preserve and maintain our small but significant pocket of this area’s original environment. For years this region has been in a constant state of physical turmoil, caused by unprecedented urban growth. Despite efforts by some government officials and a few builders, the negative impact on the area’s ecosystems has been enormous. Our Chapter grounds have become a refuge to many of the area’s indigenous plants and wildlife, providing for some species one of their few remaining habitats. We hope that other species that are sheltered on the property will eventually learn to adapt to a region that will some day become more stable, and use our land as a launching point for growth and expansion.
