Welcome to the IOA!
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. Speakers for 2019 range from conservation, authors, & contributors.

Idaho Mountain Search and Rescue: The 10 Essentials Presentation:
March 10, 7:00 PM at The Idaho Outdoor Association Hall
This presentation provides an overview of the Idaho Mountain Search and Rescue Unit (IMSARU) to include what functions the unit performs and the units capabilities. It also introduces and discusses the 10 essentials items that everyone should consider carrying with them whenever traveling. The 10 essentials are primarily for adventures into wilderness areas but some items should be considered whenever traveling away from home. This course will also address things to do to keep yourself from getting lost.
As always, this event is free and open to the general public.
The Idaho Outdoor Association will become a chartering organization for a Scouting Unit in 2019. 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.
