The BLM in Idaho
The BLM manages nearly 12 million acres of public lands in Idaho, nearly one-fourth of the state's total land area. Four BLM district offices, 12 field offices, and the Idaho State Office administer the public lands in Idaho with a mission of sustaining the health, diversity and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.
Resources on the public lands include recreation, rangelands, timber, minerals, water, fish and wildlife, wilderness, air and soils, and scenic, scientific, and cultural values. By strengthening existing and forging new partnerships with stakeholders, the BLM works to ensure that the nation’s public lands are managed and conserved for future generations of Americans to use and enjoy.
