About The Nature Conservancy in Idaho
The Nature Conservancy has worked with Idaho's communities and landowners since 1976, when we purchased our first preserve, Silver Creek. Since then, we've helped to conserve more than 400,000 acres of iconic landscapes and habitat. Our work focuses on building lasting relationships and tangible results.
