The Jim Hall Foothills Learning Center (JHFLC) is a place where visitors can explore, learn about, and connect with Boise's diverse natural landscapes. We serve over 10,000 students and community members annually, offering environmental education programs designed to ignite interest in natural resources, science, and Idaho's cultural and ecological heritage.
The City of Boise Open Space Reserves are a diverse group of protected properties, each of which represents significant ecological, historical, recreational or cultural value to our community. Together they form strong connections to our natural environment and are worthy of lasting conservation. Simply stated, our open space reserves are the special places we go to reflect, to play, to learn and to live.
