Boise Kind Day

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.

Boise Kind Day - Goathead Removal

Puncturevine, or goatheads, are problem for everyone no matter how you choose to recreate in our Boise Foothills. On Boise Kind Day, help the City of Boise remove this pest from heavily trafficked trails in the Ridge to Rivers trail system and along the Greenbelt. Removing goatheads early, before seeds form, is critical to reduce the spread of this invasive species and protect our bike tires, pets, and the important wildlife habitat in Boise's backyard. 

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.

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.
