The Idaho Outdoor Business Council provides a strong voice on behalf of sustainable recreation and of the benefits of healthy lands and waters to Idaho’s important outdoor recreation economy. 


The Idaho Outdoor Business Council is a coalition of businesses and recreation groups dedicated to preserving and promoting Idaho’s spectacular wild lands and waters, and to educating public officials as to the importance of conservation measures and public lands funding initiatives as drivers for Idaho’s outdoor recreation economy and quality of life. Formed in 2012, and now with 50 members across Idaho, we are committed to growing awareness and influence about our wild places and public lands. 

The Idaho Outdoor Business Council supports public lands funding initiatives such as the Land and Water Conservation Fund as well as appropriate conservation measures including roadless areas, wild and scenic rivers, and public lands management efforts that expand and improve opportunities for hiking, biking, paddling, climbing, backcountry skiing and snowshoeing, camping, hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing and more.

Currently, IOBC is engaging business support to take a stand for our public lands.
