Lands Council

In 1983, John Osborn, then an intern at Sacred Heart Medical Center, decided something needed to be done to protect the land he called home. A group of area physicians, concerned about the environment's effect on people's health, agreed. And thus The Lands Council, a local grassroots, non-profit dedicated to protecting the quality of life in the Inland Northwest, was born.  Since their humble beginnings, they have grown into the leading conservation voice in the Inland Northwest, protecting thousands of acres of public land, and in the process have worked to preserve the forests, water, and wildlife we all depend on for life.
