Public Lands are our American heritage. Conservation Voters for Idaho is working with you to tell land grabbing politicians to keep their hands off our public lands.

slide_CastleAndMerriamPeaksFromLittleBoulderMdws-2Idaho’s 34.5 million acres of national public lands are our natural inheritance, treasured for their access to recreation, hunting, fishing as well as their importance to local economies. Unfortunately, an out of state scheme to “transfer” these public lands into state or private hands has gained some traction around the West, including several legislative attempts here in Idaho. There are many reasons why this is a terrible idea, including the potential loss of access to these lands, huge management and wildfire costs, and a shift from management for multiple-uses to management for making maximum revenue off the land. Conservation Voters of Idaho is leading the effort to Keep Public Lands in Public Hands.
