In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, BLM-Idaho will highlight 50 adventures in the Owyhee Canyonlands Wilderness Areas throughout 2014. Each “Wilderness Wednesday” during this year of celebration, the public will find a new post on BLM Idaho’s Facebook page, suggesting a new idea for a wilderness adventure. All activities will also be featured on the BLM-Idaho website. Each wilderness adventure will identify the wilderness area and include a photo, brief description, suggested experience level, location and approximate time to complete. Posts will begin on January 22. Members of the public are encouraged to share their photos and experiences in Idaho’s wilderness by using #IdahoWilderness50. We will share our favorites on our Facebook page throughout the year.

Grand Prismatic Spring – the largest hot spring in Yellowstone National Park and one of the most colorful. Hot springs are like people in that there are no two of them that look or act exactly the same.

Add the Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey NCS in Idaho to your Summer Bucket List for its wildlife and supporting habitat.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) manages the area to preserve its remarkable wildlife habitat while providing for other compatible uses of the land, so that birds of prey flourish here as they have for thousands of years. The area’s 485,000 acres host some 800 pairs of hawks, owls, eagles and falcons that come each spring to mate and raise young.
See more photos of the area on BLM’s My Public Lands Tumblr.
