Open Space - Weed Warriors

Invasive plant species are harmful to our natural resources because they disrupt natural communities and ecological processes, especially in delicate desert environments like our Boise foothills. Weed Warriors is a program where participants work together to selectively remove invasive plant species, and thus improve the ability for native species to compete with their non-native visitors. When attending a weed-pulling event, please wear sturdy hiking shoes, be prepared for walking on uneven terrain, and pulling some weeds! Garden gloves, appropriate outerwear, and water are recommended for all field activities.

Please join us for Thursday weed pulls wherever there are issues with non-native species. Events will run from 8:30-10 am. You may come for 5 minutes or stay for 1.5 hours, it's up to you! 

As of now, events are tentatively scheduled at the locations listed below. You will receive an email several days prior to the event with more location and event specific information.

  • 7/18 - Hyatt Hidden Lakes - Parking Lot off Maple Grove
  • 7/25 - Warm Springs Park - Meet off Marden Lane.
