The Conservation Farm Guide was made possible through grants from the Izaak Walton League of America Endowment and the Bethesda Chevy Chase IWLA Endowment Inc. The membership of the Bethesda Chevy Chase Chapter continues to support the reprinting of the book with a line item in its annual budget.

Five members of the Bethesda Chevy Chase Chapter, the Book Committee, worked on the creation of the Conservation Farm Guide for 16 months meeting every Tuesday night for the entire period. The huge amount of work between meetings consisting of creative writing, photos, research and formatting was beyond the scope of volunteers but they persevered. These committee members have asked not to be recognized so that the Conservation Farm Guide will always belong to the B-CC IWLA. To those members of the committee “Thank You” for donating your time, talent and expertise.
The Conservation Farm Guide is given to every new member the night that they join the Bethesda Chevy Chase Chapter. It has also been distributed to local schools and libraries, as well as every conservation organization located in Montgomery County Maryland, as a physical example of our comprehension of and our commitment to conservation.
