Stretching from the jagged peaks of the Bitterroot Mountains in the east to river canyons in the west, Idaho’s Clearwater Basin is home to the North Fork of the Clearwater and the Lochsa rivers.
Since Lewis and Clark passed through the area two centuries ago, the Clearwater has been threatened by logging and road construction. We are helping to restore key wildlife and fish habitat.
The Clearwater Basin encompasses a million acres of forests, rivers and mountains, providing world-class habitat for Canada lynx and wolverines.
We work collaboratively to restore the Clearwater’s forests and streams and protect critical fish and wildlife habitat.
We partner with local communities, public agencies, elected officials and other organizations to promote healthy habitat for wildlife and native plants.
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.
