Open Space - Weed Warriors

Weed Warriors is kicking off the 2020 season with two opportunities to learn about the program and common invasive species in our lower Boise foothills. The first hour of the event will include a presentation and discussion about the Weed Warriors mission followed by a nature walk around the Foothills Learning Center and Hulls Gulch to learn invasive species identification and management.

  • 4/1 from 2-5pm
  • 4/4 from 10-1pm

If you cannot attend the learning sessions but are passionate about invasive species removal, please feel free to join us for Weed Warrior group removal effort. Weed pulls will be every Thursday from 10-12pm. Hours will shift to earlier during the summer to avoid the heat of the day.  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.

  • 4/16 - Hulls Gulch
  • 4/23 - Hillside to Hollow
  • 4/30 - Foothills East Reserve
  • 5/7 - Table Rock
  • 5/14 - TBD
