Caring for Parks


BioBlitz!Join us as we explore the vast biodiversity of Marianne Williams Park for a BioBlitz, Saturday, April 20. 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 in Marianne Williams Park.

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!

Citizen Science

On-going Programs

For those of you that are looking for an ongoing volunteer opportunity, we offer a range of opportunities that are either seasonally based or require a year-long commitment.

Road to X Games

Road to X GamesThis is the third consecutive year the City of Boise is hosting a park qualifier at Rhodes Skate Park, and we couldn’t be more excited. More than 12,000 fans attended the two-day event last year to watch qualifying rounds, visit vendor booths and check out the free family fun zone near the skate park, and we anticipate another great event this year.

The 2019 Park Qualifier is scheduled for June 28th and 29th, and will feature three disciplines: Men’s Skateboard Park, Women’s Skateboard Park and BMX Park, with top finishers getting invites to X Games Minneapolis.

We wouldn't be able to hold this event without the support of our community. As such, we are seeking outgoing and energetic volunteers to help us make the event a success, and show the world how awesome Boise is.
