On Oct. 12 the Marshall County Conservation Commission, along with the Marshall County Izaak Walton League, celebrated 30 years with the Uncle Ike's Program. This program was the dream of Ike member, Don Montgomery. Don had a vision of his young son Danny and other children his age learning how to appreciate the environment. Don often said, "We need kids to get involved now, to keep programs like Izaak Walton Leagues alive. Kids now a' days just do not get to explore the great outdoors like I did as a child."
