Other Places We Work

In addition to our seven landscapes, we work to protect wilderness in New Mexico, Idaho and Greater Yellowstone.

Idaho

Idaho is home to some of the most rugged and remote wildlands in the United States. The state's diverse wildlife and plant species are among the rarest in the American west.

This information is intended to ease your research and inform your reporting during the president’s visit. It focuses on four areas where the president’s administration has made major, important decisions:
