Coeur d’Alene Lake and the region offer many opportunities to get involved. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer in programs that directly impact the health of our basin, check out some of these opportunities:

IdaH20 Master Water Stewards


Developed by University of Idaho Extension, IdaH20 is a citizen science program designed to support community members who want to directly monitor water quality in their community. IdaH20 is a great way to get outside and learn about what’s happening in your own back yard!




Volunteer with the Lake Management Team


There are opportunities to help out on the Lake Management Team from time to time. These change throughout the year, and can vary greatly. It’s a great way to learn more about the basin and see first-hand what we do on the ground. Contact Us to discuss the potential.

The Idaho Native Plant Society


The Idaho Native Plant Society promotes interest in native plants through classes, plant sales, garden tours and publications. They also host field trips, and assist with nature trails and natural areas.

Idaho Master Gardeners


Idaho Master Gardeners are a statewide program led by University of Idaho to support research-based horticulture education for volunteers, who then contribute volunteer time in their community.

Local and regional environmental organizations


Kootenai Environmental Alliance
The Lands Council
