Following the directives of the State Board of Land Commissioners, the Idaho Department of Lands carries out the daily management of 2.4 million acres of state endowment trust land, generating income for the beneficiaries a number of ways: the sale of timber; leases for grazing, farming, conservation, commercial buildings, recreational homesites, and mining; and earnings from invested funds.
The Idaho Department of Lands also manages Idaho's public trust lands - the lands beneath the beds of Idaho's navigable lakes and rivers - for the benefit of all Idahoans, and provides service and assistance to Idahoans through forestry and fire programs. The Department also serves as the administrative arm of the Idaho Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.
