Kootenai Environmental Alliance is a grass roots organization, in every sense of the term. We have no large corporate sponsors. No huge budget. But, we do have you. Members like you – those supporting our efforts to conserve, protect and restore the environment in our North Idaho region – play a crucial role in keeping KEA running strong. You’re doing what you can to help enhance the quality of life for all who live and work in our communities.

As we look towards 2018, were excited about continuing our current programs as well as implementing new ones. And, the more Sustainable Memberships we have, the easier is it to plan for these initiatives, both organizationally and fiscally.


A Sustainable Membership is also easier for you. Your donation is automatically executed on a monthly basis per the method of payment you choose. Once you decide on an amount – it can be as small as $10 per month – then you’re all set for the year.

You’re already making a great effort to aid the KEA mission. By switching to a Sustainable Membership, you’ll be helping us even more as we strive to make a difference in our forests, rivers, lakes, and streams.


“I am a KEA Sustainable Member because it is the easiest way for me to be sure I support the organization that best represents  “Grassroots for Conservation and Community.”  ”   Janet Torline  the current, longest serving board member and, first KEA sustainable member

“I am sustaining because it gives KEA A more dependable income which enables better more efficient work and that helps  the giver and the receiver more.  Plus it is easy ”   Suzanne Marshall   KEA Volunteer of the Year 2017
