Mission and Vision

Why does ICL exist? To protect the very best of Idaho and work to influence conservation policy.

The Idaho Conservation League works to protect the air you breathe, the water you drink and the land you love.

We know that the values we hold are shared by many Idahoans, so we work diligently to be Idaho's leading voice for conservation. ICL's goal is to create an informed and engaged conservation majority in Idaho. By building a robust conservation community, we hope to influence local, state and federal policies to ensure adequate protections for clean water, clean air, healthy families and Idaho's unique way of life.


ICL works to protect Idaho's environment. 


Keep Idaho Idaho. The Idaho Conservation League was founded around this phrase in 1973. It still reflects much of what we do.

Our Heritage of Special Places Could Disappear

That's right. In today's world, westerners periodically decry federal control of our public lands. They forget that those lands belong to all Americans—not just Idahoans and not just those who would like to sell them off to the highest bidder. Let your delegation know that public lands should remain in public hands!
