Kaniksu Land Trustupdated: February 2017

The Kaniksu Land Trust is a not-for-profit organization that promotes healthy lands and healthy communities with the understanding that the two are inextricably linked. We facilitate voluntary land conservation by working with landowners to keep priceless lands intact. We also engage our community with land in order to overcome challenges related to health and education, and to encourage an ethic of long-term stewardship.

The organization was originally founded in 2002 as the Clark Fork-Pend Oreille Conservancy with the purpose of supporting the land conservation needs of Avista Corporation’s protection, mitigation, and enhancement measures required under the Clark Fork Settlement Agreement issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in 1999.  Signed by 27 public and private entities, the Settlement Agreement became part of Avista’s federal license to operate the dams at Cabinet Gorge and Noxon Rapids. In the summer of 2012, the land trust changed its name and re-branded itself as Kaniksu Land Trust in order to better reflect its regional land and water conservation mission and to provide an identity recognizable to its constituents.
