Help Celebrate Conservation Heroes!

The family of Bill Davidson is hosting their annual Bill Davidson Memorial BBQ and fundraiser for Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust on July 1, 2022 from 6-9 PM at 353 Washington Avenue, Pocatello, Idaho. Help to remember and celebrate Bill Davidson’s lifetime of service conserving and protecting wildlife habitat and open spaces in Southeast Idaho!

Donations to Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust help protect, connect, and enhance wildlife habitat, working lands, and community spaces in Southeast Idaho, now and for future generations.  

The family and Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust will announce and present the Bill Davidson Conservation Volunteer Award to a local conservation hero – a dedicated, long-term volunteer steward of southeastern Idaho’s wildlife, waterways, and landscape. We will also announce and present the Conservation Partners Award to a local conservation partner.  

Food and beer will be provided through the generosity of the family. You are welcome to bring your own beverage if beer is not to your liking. 

Bill Davidson dedicated his life to conserving and protecting wildlife habitat and open spaces throughout southeast Idaho. In 1960, he graduated from the University of Idaho with a degree in Wildlife Management and went on to serve 30 years in the Idaho Fish and Game Department. In his retirement, concerned with the widespread development of wildlife habitat and open space, he and fellow community leaders set out to establish the Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust – an organization that would hold land in trust, undeveloped, in perpetuity.

To honor his conservation legacy, the family and Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust have presented a local conservation hero with the Bill Davidson Conservation Award every year since his passing in 2016, with the exception of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Recipients of this award are dedicated stewards of Southeast Idaho. These are individuals who have a deep connection to the rich sagebrush steppe rangelands, clear rivers and streams, and rugged peaks of this landscape – and are doing everything they can to protect it.
