Boise Parks

BioBlitz!

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.

Open Space Division

Boise Urban Garden School

The Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS) is a specialized, inquiry-based education organization. We strive to provide students with unique learning experiences by utilizing an organic garden setting. Since our founding, we have been dedicated to providing students with knowledge through “real life” experiences, and each year we are able to serve approximately 6,500 local youth and families through a variety of educational programs. We know that a student who is able to dig in the soil, plant a seed, and watch it grow will be excited to eat the fruits of their labor, and will better understand the science behind a sprouting seed or the process of photosynthesis.

Jim Hall Foothills Learning Center

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.

Open Space

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.

Service Projects

The Open Space division offers corporations, schools, churches, civic organizations, and others the opportunity to participate in a service project. These projects can take place any time during the year, and will take into account your group size, availability, and what our needs are at the time.

For school groups this may include a service learning component at which students will receive both classroom instruction, as well as participate in a field activity.

Volunteers must review the City of Boise Volunteer Handbook to participate.
