Sawtooth Society, Inc.

The Sawtooth Society is a independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization formed in 1997 to help protect the 756,000-acre Sawtooth National Recreation Area (SNRA).

The Society's mission is to help preserve and protect the natural, historical and recreational qualities of the SNRA. 

The Society's objectives:

  • Encouraging the Administration, Congress and Forest Service to make the SNRA a high priority.
  • Facilitating the acquisition of conservation easements on the most vulnerable-to-development properties in the SNRA.
  • Funding recreational facilities and services in the SNRA.
  • Promoting constructive working relationships between all who live, work and play in the SNRA.
  • Supporting public and private efforts to mitigate the mountain pine beetle infestation and reduce the threat of wildfires.
  • Dealing with other issues of bedrock importance to the area including a resolution to the mining of a highly visible state-owned lands within the SNRA.
  • Developing and implementing a long-term vision for the SNRA, to benefit of those who live, work and recreate there.
