“As more people decide to make Central Idaho and Long Valley their home, it is so important to conserve the open space and working lands that surround us. These values are what brought us here. The Payette Land Trust plays a crucial role to conserve the natural resources, rural landscapes and scenic values that we all enjoy. I am honored to contribute my time to find solutions to conserve the rural landscapes of Central Idaho.”

“Most individuals associate Payette Land Trust with the recent and continuing activity involving Endowment Lands around McCall and Valley County. While that is certainly  appropriate we additionally  are presently active in four counties, Valley, Adams, Washington and Idaho County. Payette Land Trust is assisting both ranchers and farmers with Agricultural Land Easements for their future heirs, private homeowners with establishing open spaces , along with state and local governmental agencies in protecting watersheds.”

“My greatest gift is to support preserving open lands that our grandchildren may never be able to see if we don’t actively engage.”

Board of Directors

Our organization is managed by a board of volunteers. It is people donating their time for the cause that gets work done. We all care immensely for helping landowners and the public leave their legacy of scenic open spaces for future generations. We look forward to meeting you.
