The dedicated staff of the Idaho Department of Lands function in 10 Supervisory Areas throughout the state as well as staff offices in Boise and Coeur d'Alene.
We manage more than 2.4 million acres of State Endowment Trust Land under a Constitutional mandate to maximize long-term financial returns to a number of beneficiaries, mainly public schools. We operate under the management directives of the Land Board.
The Idaho Department of Lands also provides services to Idahoans through regulatory and assistance programs.
The Idaho Department of Lands, having been assigned additional duties over the years by the State Legislature, also now serves as the host agency to the Idaho Board of Scaling Practices, the Clearwater-Potlatch Timber Protective Association and the Southern Idaho Timber Protective Association. The department also is the administrative arm of the Idaho Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.
