Boise Kind Day - Goathead Removal - Military Reserve Goathead Removal

Help us remove invasive goatheads from Military Reserve on Boise Kind Day!  Noxious weeds, like puncturevine, form dense thickets that negatively alter the landscape and also impact recreational users by causing flat tires and injuring pet's feet. Help us remove this pesky intruder and slow the spread of goathead by pulling them along Toll Road, Elephant Rock Loop, and Mountain Cove Trail. 

A maximum number of 100 participants will be accepted for this project. Folks should wear clothing that can get dirty, sturdy shoes (no flip-flops or sandals), and bring work gloves. It is easiest to remove goatheads with a gardening tool, so please also bring a trowel, pruners, weed knife, or any other implement that can assist with removing these plants from the ground. 

Volunteers must review the City of Boise Volunteer Handbook to participate.

Qualifications Required
