Stewardship over wild spaces is part of Idaho’s heritage and identity. HFWA believes in putting conservation in the hands of the community. All our conservation and citizen science projects are planned in collaboration with other organizations, agencies, and like-minded landowners. Volunteers feel satisfaction seeing their hard work benefit the lands, waters, and wildlife we all cherish.
