Izaak Walton League names member of the year

The Mountaineer Chapter of Izaak Walton League of America Board of Directors recently voted and has named James C. Pack, of Beverly, its 2013 Mountaineer Chapter’s Member of the Year. This annual award was created to recognize a member for their outstanding dedication and volunteer work toward improving the chapter.

After retiring from the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources Wildlife Section, as a wildlife biologist, Pack has volunteered to inventory the timber on the chapter’s property.

He has spent countless hours cruising the chapter’s property inventorying timber, identifying plots and locating and marking boundaries. When his work is completed he will present to the members his recommendations for best timber management practices for the Mountaineer Chapter Property.

During the chapter’s annual Christmas Dinner, Pack was presented a plaque for his outstanding service from the chapter’s president, Bruce Evans. More information about the Mountaineer Chapter of IWLA can be found online by visiting www.iwla.org/Mountaineer.
