Boise District Office

The Boise District, located in southwest Idaho, manages approximately 4 million acres of public land stretching from the central Idaho mountains to the borders with Oregon and Nevada. The District has many challenges to face as it balances its mission of multiple use and sustainable yield to achieve a sustainable ecosystem. Some of the major activities occurring within the district include: livestock grazing, wildland fire suppression, as well as motorized and non-motorized recreation. The Boise District is divided into three geographic areas/field offices: Bruneau (1.4 million acres), Four Rivers (1.3 million acres) and Owyhee (1.2 million acres). The District also manages Idaho's only National Conservation Area, Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey (487,000 acres), home to the greatest concentration of nesting birds of prey in North America – and perhaps, the world. Some 800 pairs of hawks, owls, eagles and falcons come each spring to mate and raise their young here.
