Caring for Parks

Citizen Science Programs

Boise parks are home to all types of wildlife, all of which have a lot to teach us about coexisting with nature. 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.

On-going Programs

For those that are looking for more of a commitment, we offer a range of opportunities that are either seasonally based or year-long.

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.
