Our mission is to conserve nature close to home in southwestern Idaho.


The Land Trust identifies lands with special natural, scenic, recreational and agricultural values, and works with willing landowners to conserve these lands through acquisition, easement, education, and good stewardship.



Hillside to the Hollow is no doubt a dog lovers dream, a place where Fido is welcome to roam free and where responsible dog owners enjoy nature close to home.
