Conservation & Advocacy

GEAS has been an active conservation voice for many years at the national, state, and local levels. We approach advocacy from a scientific-based view point. Below are some of the issues and places in which we have been partners, leaders, or conservation advocates.

Blacks Creek Bird Reserve

GEAS was the initiating force behind the creation of Blacks Creek Bird Reserve, an Audubon Important Bird Area. Learn more about the history of this special place and the community-led work that went into its restoration.

Stop the Thunk Campaign

An estimated 365 million to 1 billion birds die a year from flying into glass windows in the US alone. GEAS leads this campaign to help prevent window strikes through consumer choices and simple steps that anyone can take at home. 


GEAS is a member of the Idaho Families for Clean Water coalition, which opposes the proposed CuMo Mine Project in the headwaters of the Boise River.

Common Raven Advocacy 

In the spring of 2014 Idaho Fish and Game Department was pursuing a course of action to protect greater sage-grouse, including the extermination of 4,000 common ravens. We strongly opposed this methodology. 

Membership starts at just $20/year and supports our programs, education, conservation, and advocacy work.
