Idaho Coalition of Land Trusts
Coalition Share Common Goals
The Wood River Land Trust, along with 19 Idaho Land Trusts and two local and state government-sponsored programs, combined in 2010 to create ICOLT, or Idaho Coalition of Land Trusts. Coalition members share a common goal, to protect and restore land, water, and wildlife habitat throughout the state of Idaho.
The ICOLT’s main focus is working on private land conservation and voluntary conservation agreements that benefit working farms, ranches and forests; preserve water quality; protect wildlife habitat; and conserve natural areas, while retaining the values that make Idaho such a wonderful place to explore, work and live. To learn more about ICOLT and its members, please visit ICOLT’s website at www.idaholandtrusts.org.
Common Ground in the PioneersEarly in 2009, the Wood River Land Trust, along with other local non-profits, regional land management agencies, ranchers, conservationists, scientists and elected officials in south-central Idaho formed the Pioneers Alliance; a coalition dedicated to protecting and sustaining the natural landscapes in the Pioneer Mountains and Craters of the Moon region. Alliance Partners are working on a long-term plan that will protect the vast landscape that is home to an abundance of wildlife, working farms and ranches, as well as diverse ecosystems. Its mission is also to provide public access to the mountains, foothills and desert, while maintaining the community-based priority of sustainable landscapes.
Meetings are open to the public. For information please contact Keri York at 208-788-3947 or firstname.lastname@example.org
