Cranes in Flight

Minidoka NWR forms partnerships with many groups to assist in the refuge mission,  including the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, local Cooperative Weed Management Areas (CWMA), Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation, Idaho Department of Lands, Bureau of Land Management, county law enforcement agencies, and the Bureau of Reclamation. 


The National Wildlife Refuge System is committed to building partnerships which encourage conservation and preservation of our natural and cultural resources.  Partnerships with the Refuge System bring innovative approaches to solving land management and water disputes in the most environmentally protective manner.  Scientifically-informed and technologically-based stewardship of our public lands, waters, wildlife and special places must be collaborative efforts between the Refuge System, other government agencies, and private organizations if conservation efforts are to succeed.
