Founded in 1973, the Idaho Conservation League has grown into Idaho’s oldest and largest state-based, non-profit natural resource conservation organization. We are a membership organization with members and supporters in every county in Idaho; a Board of Directors with statewide geographic representation; and four offices–Boise, Ketchum, McCall and Sandpoint–employing 26 staff. ICL’s mission is to create a conservation community and pragmatic, enduring solutions that protect and restore the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the land and wildlife you love. Our vision is an Idaho where public lands remain public and are well managed, air is clean, lakes and rivers are healthy, fish and wildlife thrive, and a prosperous, sustainable future exists for all Idahoans. ICL is committed to doing conservation work in an equitable and just way. Clean water, clean air, public lands, and abundant fish and wildlife should be accessible to everyone. ICL is committed to a long-term goal of broadening our work to better serve the diversity of people our work connects to, particularly those populations with traditionally underrepresented voices or marginalized communities.
