Idaho’s rangelands are a great playground for outdoor recreationists, and they’re also an important workplace for ranchers. There is plenty of room on Idaho’s rangelands for all of us if we take care of the land and treat each other with respect.
The Care/Share program, created by IRRC in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Idaho Department of Lands and the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, has been successful in educating recreationists about how to interact with livestock on public lands. Care/Share signs are available by filling out this form online or emailing this form to IRRC.
As IRRC Executive Director Gretchen Hyde says in the video, “Most recreationists have no problem seeing livestock on public lands, but they’re kind of confused as to what to do when they have that interaction.”
