Caring for Parks
Join us as we explore the vast diversity of life at Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve for a BioBlitz, Saturday, October 9. Participants will work alongside local experts and environmental educators to document the plants, insects, birds and other organisms that call this unique park home. Through a combination of traditional paper data sheets and digital citizen science tools, you can help create a lasting record of the plants and animals that reside at Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve
This is a great opportunity to reconnect with nature, meet new people and contribute to science. All activity will involve walking on unpaved trails and being in the great outdoors. We hope to see you there!
Community Science Programs
Boise parks are home to all types of wildlife which have a lot to teach us about our natural world. Boise Parks and Recreation works hard to provide safe spaces for our local wildlife to live, which not only includes habitat preservation but also tracking their activity to determine how they are doing. This is partially achieved through a number of citizen science programs that engage Boiseans in collecting scientific data, which is ultimately shared with national science programs. If you love to commune with nature and want to learn more about the natural world, then these programs are right up your ally.
