Maps

The following maps of south-central Idaho, or perhaps better known as Magic Valley, are available as downloadable and printable PDFs.

  • Conservation Easements Map (PDF)

    The Southern Idaho Land Trust (SILT) holds almost 1,000 acres in conservation easements. This map shows their locations. These easements have redeeming conservation value in terms of keeping land from development in order to keep wildlands available for wildlife and fowl. Some of this land is also in danger of being overtaken by subdivision or industrial development; a conservation easement in these cases protects open space that is needed to keep farming and ranching intact.

  • Focal Areas Map (PDF)

    The SILT service area covers roughly Twin Falls, Cassia, Minidoka, Jerome, Gooding,Lincoln and western Owyhee counties in the region referred to as south-central Idaho, or also Magic Valley. This map shows areas, which are based on watersheds, that are prime focal targets for preserving for conservation purposes.

  • Land Ownership Map (PDF)

    This map shows all land ownership and management in SILT’s service area.

  • Prime Farmland Map (PDF)

    One of SILT's primary missions is to protect prime fram and ranch land from development. Check out this map to see where prime farm and ranch land is located in Magic Valley. In addition, when SILT considers taking a conservation easement for the purpose of protecting prime farmland, SILT's board always takes into consideration the possibility of that property undergoing development other than farming or ranching in the not-too-distant future.

    The SILT service area covers roughly Twin Falls, Cassia, Minidoka, Jerome, Gooding,Lincoln and western Owyhee counties in the region referred to as south-central Idaho, or also Magic Valley.

  • Wildlife Conservation Strategies Map (PDF)

    Focal Areas are general areas known to be important for the species of greatest conservation need (SGCN). Focal Areas are defined as resource-based, management-based or both Resource Focal Areas are areas necessary for the long-term persistence of SGNC and their habitats. Management Focal Areas are areas that target resources and efforts to benefit the largest number of species and habitats in need of conservation.

  • Sensitive Wetland Areas Map (PDF)

    Wetlands in the SILT service area have been mapped as part of the National Wetlands Inventory (NWI). These wetlands include existing wetlands, emergent wetlands, and waterbodies. Sensitive Wetland Areas as shown on this map depict all lands within 200 feet of any NWI wetland greater than 1.0 acres in size. Nearly all Sensitive Wetland Areas occur on private lands.
