Discover the Sawtooth Interpretive & Historical Association…
AND DISCOVER THE SAWTOOTH NRA
Welcome to the Sawtooth Interpretive & Historical Association. Some folks who know us call us SIHA (SEE-hah)! Others just call us the Sawtooth Association or SA. We are a non-profit, member-based organization working in cooperation with the Sawtooth and Salmon-Challis National Forests. We were incorporated in 1972 as the first – and only – Cooperating Interpretive Association for the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. We work in partnership with the Forest Service to provide interpretive and educational programs on the Sawtooth NRA.
We are working to save and tell the stories of this grand environment…
- some stories are as old as the mountains
- some swim past in the river
- some are from the pioneers
- some are a way to protect the future
