The Boise National Forest and Payette National Forest are extremely diverse wildlands that contain meadows, mountains, desert plains and river canyons.
We work with diverse partners to restore degraded habitat and form a connected, healthy landscape. We also work to create forest restoration jobs for local citizens.
Spanning nearly five million acres across some of Idaho's most diverse landscapes, these forests encompass desert grasslands, high elevation conifer forests and alpine peaks.
The Wilderness Society is leading two collaborative forest restoration efforts in central Idaho’s Payette and Boise National Forests.
We are one of many partners working to protect, restore and connect the lands and wildlife of these forests while creating local jobs.
Wilderness is a precious resource with many human, natural and economic benefits that we need to protect.
Hear artists, activists and adventurers share what the ownership and legacy of these American wildlands means to them.
