Congratulations are in order for the Idaho Conservation League as the organization celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.
Pew has worked with the Idaho Conservation League on important wilderness initiatives, such as successfully protecting the Owyhee Canyonlands, and that partnership continues today on efforts to safeguard the Boulder-White Clouds in central Idaho.
Since 1973, the league has dedicated itself to protecting the air, water, and wild places of Idaho, and, with 19 employees in three offices across the state, the organization leads the conservation agenda in Idaho's statehouse and advocates on behalf of Idahoans in Washington, D.C., as well.
The league's celebrations began Jan. 26 at the Stueckle Sky Center in Boise, as more than 250 people gathered to look back at 40 years of accomplishments and look forward to new challenges and opportunities. The league premiered a video documenting its first 40 years through interviews with partners and supporters, and archival photographs. Additional anniversary events are planned for July 25 in Ketchum and Sept. 14 in Sandpoint.
Please join us in raising a glass to the Idaho Conservation League and wishing the organization many more years of wild success.
