Idaho land up for grabs
The Idaho Legislature is trying to take public lands, including National Forests, where we love to camp, ride, climb, paddle and ski. No matter how you enjoy the outdoors, this matters to you. That’s why we banded together with other local groups to tell the Legislature this is a bad idea.
• Transferring public lands to state control would be bad for outdoor recreation in Idaho.
• Portions of public lands would be sold off to the highest bidder. For the rest of it, there would be even less money available for trails, roads and firefighting.
• Transferring public lands would hurt the 6.3-billion-dollar Idaho outdoor industry.
• According to 73% of Idahoans, the Federal Government already manages public lands well and the current way works.
