We don’t meet because we must, we meet because we need to!

IRC is now 19 years old, in those years we have worked together on issues in every part of this state. The recreation community has proved that by being engaged and working together, we can be a powerful force! I believe we have made a difference and we have just begun. There is still so much to do, so many challenges and opportunities. We need you to make it happen. Please attend the December meeting and bring your issues, concerns, and opinions.

Date: December 2, 2023

Location: 501 Baybrook Court, Boise

Time: 10:00 am to 3 pm

The Idaho Recreation Council is comprised of Idahoans from all parts of the state with a wide spectrum of recreation interest and love for the future of Idaho and a desire to preserve recreation for future generations of Idahoans. If you believe access is important to your recreation please consider joining a club in your area.

Responsible Shared Use

These three words succinctly express the Idaho Recreation Council’s philosophy; a philosophy that emphasis rights and responsibilities.  For example, both motorized and non-motorized users recreate on public lands but each also has a responsibility to act in a way that minimizes their impact on the resource as well as on the other users.  With these opportunities granted to us, comes responsibilities. 

The phrase goes beyond simply advocating multiple use.  It requires from those who advocate it a willingness to not be selfish.  It means other’s preferences are accepted recognizing that one’s choice of recreation is not better than another, just different, and that not one user group has greater rights than another.  Behavior is courteous and respectful at all times and is not dependent upon others behavior.
