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.


After Thanksgiving Hike up Cervidae Peak

Saturday, November 27, 2021

12:30 pm @ The IOA Hall

Please join us for an afternoon hike to the summit of Cervidae Peak. This 4.4 mile round-trip outing is somewhat strenuous as it gains 1,883ft in 2.2 miles. The trail is in pretty good condition but is steep in some sections. Don't be too discouraged however, a good walking stick will be of great use in the steep areas. From the summit you will be treated to an expansive view of mountains near and far, including the snow-covered Trinity Mountains.

The long term forecast shows that chances of rain are slight, but it will be a brisk day, so bundle up. Frank will be leading the group and will regale you with the history and geography of the surrounding area.

Meet us at the Idaho Outdoor Association Hall at 12:30pm.
