We strive to inform, inspire, and empower citizens to get involved in local and regional public land issues. This is accomplished through on-line communication, grassroots organizing, community events, and spending time in Clearwater Country! There are a number of ways that you can get involved with our organization. Please consider becoming a member.

Hikes & Field Seminars
We take weekend-long adventures to wild places like the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, the Weitas Creek Roadless Area, and the Lochsa Research Natural Area. Every trip offers opportunities to learn more about the natural history, and rugged landscape of wild Clearwater country. All trips are free and open to the public. Learn about Clearwater Country.

If you are interested in assisting us with office administration, grant writing, fundraising, community organizing, field monitoring, or something else please contact us.

We encourage students from University of Idaho, Lewis-Clark State College, and Washington State University to apply. Hours are flexible and hands on training is provided.
