The Nature Conservancy has protected more than 400,000 acres in Idaho, for people and nature. Beyond the numbers, though, are the stories. Each place we protect has its own stories — stories of ranchers and volunteers, of tireless salmon and secretive grizzlies, of world-class fishing and epic hikes. Join our staff as we explore the wonders of the state. And we hope to see you at one of our projects soon, creating your own memories, your own stories.
