The Idaho Lands Resource Coordinating Council (ILRCC), convened at the discretion of the State Forester, acts as an advisory body to the Idaho Department of Lands. 

The primary objective of this Council is to facilitate strategic natural resource management through developing and implementing Idaho’s Forest Action Plan, administering Idaho’s State & Private Forestry programs, and crafting grant applications to seek federal funds to carry out forest-improvement projects on state and private forestlands. 

Additionally, the Council was developed to recognize and support opportunities to work together and leverage limited resources to address multiple critical natural resource issues of statewide importance.
