Land Trust mission

Our mission is to protect, connect, and enhance wildlife habitat, working lands, and community spaces in Southeast Idaho, now and for future generations. 

what we do

Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust works with willing landowners in Southeast Idaho to conserve private land by creating tailored agreements, known as conservation easements, to protect land while keeping it in private ownership.

where we work

We serve the public, farmers and ranchers, and others who care about conservation in seven counties of Southeast Idaho: Bannock, Bear Lake, Bingham, Caribou, Franklin, Oneida and Power.

our story

The Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust is a place-based community organization comprised of citizens, landowners, businesses and corporations who are committed to protecting the unique qualities that make Southeast Idaho such a special place. We recognize that one way of maintaining the wildlife habitat and heritage of Southeast Idaho is by protecting the privately-owned land that holds this landscape together. Private lands not only lie at the heart of our farming and ranching heritage, but also harbor critical streams and rivers that are the lifeblood of our vibrant fish and wildlife populations.

Founded in 2004, the Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust is located in Pocatello, Idaho and serves seven counties: Bannock, Bear Lake, Bingham, Caribou, Franklin, Oneida and Power. Within our nearly 6-million-acre service area, approximately 50% of land is owned by state, federal, or tribal entities, while the remaining 50% is in private ownership.

We are aware of the increasing challenges facing landowners who strive to keep their family land intact, open, and available for wildlife and continued farming and ranching opportunities. By working with landowners to create tailored agreements, known as conservation easements, we can help landowners protect their treasured land and achieve their conservation goals.

Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust is honored to work with many amazing and dedicated people. Our goal is to help more landowners with conservation options and continue building upon our work of conserving and protecting lands in Southeast Idaho for many more generations to come.
