Any outdoorsmen, be it to fish, hunt or hike, rely on our forests to provide recreation. KEA monitors all Forest Service timber sales and takes action when environmental laws are violated to ensure that our forests remain a source of clean water and recreational opportunities for all. In 1990 KEA launched its Forest Watch program and since has been the protective watchdog of the Idaho Panhandle National Forests. We work to keep our forests sustainable, and to provide habitat sufficient to support viable fisheries and wildlife populations.
