The Suffolk-Nansemond Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America, chartered in June of 1954, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation, maintenance and protection of the soil, forest, water, and other natural resources of the city of Suffolk, VA and surrounding areas; and to promoting means and opportunities for educating the public about their enjoyment and wholesome utilization, as stated in our Mission Statement.
We have monthly dinner meetings with guest speakers on local conservation concerns/initiatives and provide our members with plenty of volunteer opportunities to assist the chapter in its goals, some of which are 2 (two) park clean-up days per year, 2 (two Adopt-A-Road clean-up days per year, our Annual Pancake Supper fundraiser, our annual education scholarship raffle and other opportunities as they arise.
We maintain a 40 acre park with a 3+ acre bass pond, 100 yard sanctioned rifle range and an archery range. Pavilions, picnic tables, a boat dock, benches, and bird houses throughout the park were built by local Boy Scouts as Eagle projects.
Regular dinner meetings are held every third Wednesday of the month at the Kings Fork Community House, located at the intersection of Kings Fork Road and Providence Road, Suffolk, Va. Dinner starts at 7:00PM. Our park is located at 480 Kings Fork Road, Suffolk, VA. Click on Park Rules, and Range Rules, respectively, for more information.
