Idaho's Public Lands

Watch The People's Land on PBS. See more from Outdoor Idaho.

Idaho is 60% public land--a statistic that many of us consider one of the greatest aspects of living here.

But public lands can also inspire contentious debate about roads, land use, ranching, logging, endangered species, recreation and many other issues.

This month, Outdoor Idaho features an excellent program on Idaho's public lands and the issues these lands face. You can watch the full episode above.

There are also a number of stories of people involved, including Bill Higgins, who is working with The Nature Conservancy and other organizations on the Clearwater Basion Collaborative.

Enjoy the episode. We hope it inspires you to speak out for this special legacy of lands and waters.
