Other Campaigns in Idaho

In addition to the national forests that we're working to protect, we're also fighting threats to Idaho's rare wild desert canyonlands and struggling wildlife species.

Idaho is home to some of the wildest deserts and rivers left in the American west. Iconic bighorn sheep roam the state's forests and mountains, but are at risk. At Wilderness, we're working to protect these wildlands and the wildlife that call them home.

Owyhee Canyonlands

The Owyhee Canyonlands span southwest Idaho, southeast Oregon and northeast Nevada. They are among the most remote areas of the continental United States. Sagebrush and juniper cover the dry desert grounds, which rise up into beautiful mountains, hoodoos (tall thin rock formations), natural arches and river canyons.

Bighorn Sheep

For decades, deadly yet preventable diseases have ravaged Idaho’s population of bighorn sheep. Our work is helping turn that situation around.
