Idaho Foundation for Parks and Lands

Idaho's oldest Land Trust serving the entire state

Since its beginning in 1972, the Foundation's goals are to promote the acquisition, preservation, conservation and maintenance of open spaces and related ecosystems.  It is organized to cooperate with community groups and governmental units within the state.  The Foundation has been fortunate, in building its track record, to acquire most of its holdings by donation rather than purchase.  A key element in the process is public and private trust and confidence.


The Idaho Foundation for Parks & Lands is a statewide public benefit privately funded organization whose mission is to preserve and protect open space lands and unique natural, scenic settings for public benefit through various flexible conservation methods.
