Caring for Parks


On-going Programs - Pollinator Posse

Due to a range of factors, including habitat loss, pollinator populations across the globe have experienced drastic decline. Some species, such as the monarch butterfly, have declined 80 - 90% over the last few decades. Not good!

To help turn the tide, Boise Parks and Recreation is working hard to provide high quality, pollinator habitat by planting, monitoring and maintaining dedicated pollinator areas in Boise Parks. These areas can be fairly labor intensive to maintain, however, which is where you come in!

We are looking for some pollinator champions to help us care for these important areas. Volunteers will help plant new pollinator plants as needed, add mulch to planting beds, remove weeds, monitor for pollinator use, etc.  The locations for the first four sessions are listed below.  Subsequent locations will be posted a week or two in advance based on the need at each garden.  Specific details about each event will be sent via email a week in advance.

August 24 - Warm Springs Park 9 am - 11 am
