Idaho Outdoor Association


Welcome to the IOA! 
Our Mission and Objectives are: 

  • To promote and encourage stewardship of the wildlife, habitat, and recreational resources of the state of Idaho.  

  • To encourage good sportsmanship, ethics, and responsibility in outdoor activities. 

  • To conserve, protect, and help maintain both public and private property used for recreational purposes. 

  • To promote and encourage healthy outdoor activities. 

We believe that anyone who participates in outdoor recreation of any kind should be willing to help protect and improve the natural resources of the state of Idaho. 

General meetings are held at our hall at 7:00 P.M., the second Tuesday of each month, October through May. 

Our meetings are free, open to the public, and refreshments are encouraged.

The Idaho Outdoor Association is a chartering organization for a Scouting Unit. As more information becomes available we will provide an interest page and schedule a parents meeting. This Scouting unit will focus on outdoor recreation, conservation and outdoor ethics in alignment with the IOA mission.


General Meeting & Barbecue

Tuesday, October 12, 2021

6:00 pm @ The IOA Hall

Please join us at the IOA hall at 6 p.m. October 12th for our first general meeting of the season!

We will have a brief business meeting followed by a BBQO and a spooky family-friendly movie.

We plan to make this an outdoor event, weather allowing, so bundle up and bring a lawn chair.

It has been a long time! Looking forward to kicking off a new year with our members.

If you haven't yet renewed your membership, you will be able to do so that night.

Dinner and popcorn will be provided. Bring your own beverages.

P.S. Please send any items you would like to have added to the General Meeting Agenda to ioa@idahooutdoorassn.org




Join us for a short but somewhat challenging members-only Fall color hike at Orchard Gulch. The total mileage will only be about a mile, but the trail quality is a bit rough. 

Because the days are getting short, we have very limited time. Be punctual and bring a headlamp just in case we aren't able to exit before sunset.

We will meet at 5:30 at the Fort Boise Park parking lot, near the dog park. From there we will caravan to the trailhead. Much of the drive will be on dirt surface.
