About Idaho Wild Sheep
Lloyd Oldenburg Scholarship
The Idaho Wild Sheep Foundation, to honor the memory of Lloyd Oldenburg, has set up a scholarship fund in his name to assist students in the field of wildlife management to achieve their college education goals. Lloyd was the program lead for Idaho Fish until his retirement in 1996. He was responsible for bighorn management plans, trapping and transplant activities, worked with other partners on the Hell Canyon Recovery Initiative and numerous advisory councils. He served many years on the Idaho WSF Board of Directors. Bighorn sheep was his passion! Click here for more information about donating to the Lloyd Oldenburg Scholarship Fund.
The Idaho Wild Sheep Foundation is involved in a number of activities, programs and issues dealing with bighorn sheep in the state of Idaho. The money raised during our banquet is used for operations, addressing pertinent bighorn conservation issues working on special projects, fighting political threats and keeping you our supporters informed and engaged. The links in the left margin of our home page highlights a few of the issues and programs IWSF has been involved with recently.
Funding, Sponsors and Donors
Funding for the Idaho Wild Sheep Foundation
Like any other non-profit 501-3-C organization, IWSF relies on revenues either raised at annual fund raising events and/or donations from individual sponsors or donors. That is the sum extent of monies the IWSF has to operate on annually; we do not have endowments or benefactors that augment or supplement our annual fund raising event.
Whether you are a sportsman, hunter or a wildlife advocate that believes strongly the bighorn resource of Idaho should be a sustained, preserved and increased for future generations, we need your support. At the close of every year, non-profit organizations, such as IWSF ask for donations which may help provide a business or individual relief to taxable income. If you are invested in Idaho and our wildlife resources, please consider a donation or include IWSF in your estate planning. Your gifts will truly be a reinvestment in a species that has occupied the mountains and canyon lands of Idaho for over 18,000 years. Bighorn sheep are survivors as evidenced by the fact animals like the Wooly Mammoths disappear from our landscape over 10,000 years ago. They survived very well until European man appeared with their associated impacts. This resource is in trouble and needs our help. Please contact our office if you have questions or would like help.
