Clive Strong – The Boise River and Idaho’s Public Trust Doctrine

May 5, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

high water Boise River

Join the Boise River Enhancement Network as we take a close look at Idaho’s public trust doctrine as it pertains to the lower Boise River.

Rooted in Roman law, the public trust doctrine recognizes the public right to many natural resources  The public trust doctrine requires Idaho to hold lands submerged below the ordinary high water mark of the Boise River in trust for the benefit of the people. Title to these lands is administered by the Idaho Department of Lands for the public benefit rather than for a specific beneficiary.

Clive Strong is a nationally recognized expert in natural resource and environmental law.  Clive joined the Office of the Idaho Attorney General in 1983 as a deputy attorney general in the Natural Resources Division. In January 1985, he was appointed Chief of the Natural Resources Division.  During his thirty-four tenure with the Office of the Idaho Attorney General, Clive was responsible for coordinating all natural resource and environmental litigation for the State of Idaho. Clive retired from the Office of the Idaho Attorney General in 2017 and is now the Legal Director of the Natural Resources and Environment for the Conference and Western Attorneys General and a natural resource and environmental law consultant.
