Idaho Watchable Wildlife Program

Over half a million Idahoans participate in wildlife watching activities annually. Watching wildlife is one of the most popular types of outdoor recreation in Idaho.

Whether you are traveling to one of Idaho’s mountains, forests, deserts, or rivers, to bird watch, view wildflowers, or snap a few photos - Idaho’s Watchable Wildlife Program makes that experience as rewarding as possible.

The Idaho Watchable Wildlife Program is a part of Idaho Department of Fish and Game's Wildlife Diversity Program. It is guided by the Idaho Watchable Wildlife Committee, a collaborative group of local, state, and federal agency representatives and conservation organizations that promotes:

  • an appreciation for wildlife and their habitats,
  • wildlife-based tourism,
  • responsible wildlife observation ethics for the citizens and wildlife of Idaho.
