Bill Sedivy

Bill has dedicated more than 15 years of his life to river conservation. As the leader of Idaho Rivers United, he has crafted alliances with unlikely partners to realize nationally important river conservation success. In 2009, Bill’s strategic work secured Congress’ designation of 328 miles of the Owyhee and Bruneau Rivers to the National Wild & Scenic Rivers System. His accomplishments extend to helping stop more than 18 proposed dams on Idaho’s rivers; safeguarding rivers with existing National Wild & Scenic Rivers System status, including the Clearwater, Lochsa and Middle Fork Salmon Rivers; and protecting Columbia and Snake River salmon.
