Friends of the Owyhee is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Your generous gift supports our trips, our upcoming youth programs, and many conservation activities in the region that would go otherwise unserved. Since 2015, we’ve led numerous trips into the Owyhee with a focus on appreciation and respect for this beautiful place. We have already made quite a positive impact in this incredible, one-of-a-kind landscape: 

  • We have combatted the invasion of Scottish thistle in Succor Creek State Park for several years now. Look up into the hills of Succor Creek during your next campout—you are now more likely to see blooms rather than invasive weeds. 

  • We have removed trash from high traffic areas. 

  • We have consulted with scientists and experts doing research in the area in an effort to help them do their job more effectively. 

  • We have facilitated youth trips that may be a child's very first time out in nature, totally unplugged. 

And it’s only the beginning. Every dollar you donate stays in the community, so that we may serve in Owyhee conservation efforts and facilitate the formation of new trips and programs. Donate today to help us grow our youth program, engage and involve the local community, and work to sustain and protect one of the wildest, most rugged spaces in the United States. 


We thank you from the bottom of our Owyhee hearts for your contribution, no matter the size.
