IWLA Eugene

Eugene Chapter

The Eugene Chapter of the Izaak Walton League has worked to provide a safe and convenient place to practice shooting for local residents for over 50 years. We are a members only range and not open to the public. The chapter and members also participate in a wide variety of voluntary conservation efforts affecting our land and wildlife. We welcome newcomers to the chapter and encourage stewardship of the land.

Range Open!

The range is open daily from 8:00AM to 7:00PM or sundown, whichever is earlier. The fourth Saturday of each month is range clean-up day. All or part of the range may be closed for repair, maintenance, or improvements. Eugene Chapter members are encouraged to volunteer for these activities and earn hours toward your work bond (which means you pay less for your Range Use Fee). Please remember to put a note with your name, the date, what you did, and the number of hours you spent, into the boxes in either pistol bay 3 or at the rifle range or by emailing workbondhours@gmail.com whenever you do any work on the range so you can get credit for it!

Please see our Calendar for any updates and/or instructions for events including shooting matches.
SplatNEW! Board Meeting Minutes and the Chapter Constitution are now online! Please see IWLA Eugene Member Resources
We will be having New Member Orientation on January 22. Once through the gate, please turn LEFT and park in the area around the shed. We will be holding Orientation in the Picnic Shelter, so please dress accordingly! We will take only the first 25 people or family units (1 family counts as one person). Please be there no later than 8:00 to fill out paperwork and pay Membership fees. Orientation will start at 8:30 am. THIS WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED! If you want a family membership, both individuals must attend the orientation! Please bring either cash or a check for your membership fees; we CANNOT take debit or credit cards!
For other membership information, please see our Membership page.
We'll have sanitized pens for you to use, or you can bring your own!

Please pick up after yourself after shooting! This means, take down your targets, clean up any garbage, and pick up your spent shells!

Lead Harvesters! Protecting the environment is one of the main precepts of the Izaak Walton League of America. Harvesting lead from the range is one of the ways the Eugene Chapter adheres to this ideal. We report the amount that has been harvested to the DEQ to show that we are serious about keeping our land clean. If you are harvesting lead from the Range, please let us know! Please contact John Gross by email at river1@continet.com. We would love to find out how much you have harvested! That information will be used in a report we do for the DEQ, but your name will not be used. Thanks for helping us make our environment better!

All remaining IWL Ladies Steel Matches for the remainder of the year are cancelled. We will start up a again April 23, 2022! See you then!  

December Range Cleanup cancelled! Have a Merry Christmas!

Remember, for every hour you work at the Range, you get $10.00 off your Range Use Fee at the next renewal (Workbond credit)! Don't forget to put a note into one of the boxes in either pistol bay 3 or at the rifle range or by emailing workbondhours@gmail.com whenever you do any work on the range. Please include your name, the date, the number of hours you worked, and what you did for that time to make sure you get your credit for it.
