This past June, more than 60 world-class athletes from around the world descended on Boise to compete in the Road to X Games park qualifier at our newly re-constructed Rhodes Skate Park. Aired on ESPN and ABC, our city and its new world-class skate park were the back drop for a fantastic show by these unbelievably talented skateboarders and BMX cyclists. It was a great two days – an unprecedented opportunity to show an international audience how our parks and open spaces are part of who we are as a community. It was also a perfect example of the return we get from our investments in our parks. Just a handful of months before, we cut the ribbon on the refurbished Rhodes Skate Park. Originally constructed in the mid-1990s by Glenn Rhodes and scores of community and city volunteers, the park, while still popular, had not aged well. But through the dogged determination of the Boise Skateboard Association and a generous $1.25 million gift from the Albertsons Family Foundation and an additional $300,000 investment from the City of Boise, Rhodes Park was reborn. Almost instantly, what have been a lackluster skate park under an overpass on the Connector instantly became known in skateboard circles as one of the top skate parks in the world – so good, in fact, it drew the attention of the X Games. In addition, the park is home to one of the few formal parkour parks around and it is a center for some outstanding public art, which is worth a visit to the area in and of itself. In all, four art pieces give the area a distinct interest and identity that will only grow with time. The summer’s events helped mark Boise and its parks as a truly unique place to live and play – fall colors make those characteristics even more rich. Through our Parks and Recreation programming, Boise defines its values, lifestyle and livability. I hope that you and your family take full advantage – and that you love every minute of it.

voLEARNteer PROGRAM Boise Parks and Recreation’s VoLEARNteer program strives to enhance enjoyment of our parks and open spaces in two ways: by providing opportunities for people to have a hand in enhancing and caring for Boise’s parks through volunteering, and by nurturing the public’s curiosity by encouraging exploration of Boise’s natural and historical significance through a variety of educational programs. Whether you want to learn something new or get your hands dirty with us, we offer lots of ways to go beyond passive enjoyment of the Boise park system. From individuals and families to classrooms and corporations, there’s something for everyone. Browse our upcoming programs and feel free to get in contact with us. We’d love to hear from you!

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

bit.ly/BPRVolunteers

NATIONAL PUBLIC LANDS DAY SEPTEMBER 30, 2017 With the 2017 Snowpocolypse and subsequent flooding of the Boise River, it has been an unusual year. Although we currently don’t know the scope of damage we’re looking at along the Boise River Greenbelt due to flooding, we do expect there to be fair amount of clean up and repairs needed. As such, we will be hosting a volunteer day to whip the Boise Greenbelt back into shape for anyone interested in lending a hand. Projects will be identified as waters recede and damage is assessed.

RAKE OUR PARKS NOVEMBER 18, 2017

Fall is an amazing time of year in Boise’s parks, with trees awash in color with autumn leaves. However, the amazing colors come at a price. The leaves fall and we end up having quite a mess on our hands. As such, we would like to invite you to participate in the 2017 Rake our Parks event, which helps us clean up the huge amount of leaves that fall. You can form your own team, or be teamed up with other volunteers and go out and help rake the leaves in one of our beautiful parks.

DECK OUT THE DEPOT DECEMBER 3, 2017

Help us celebrate the holiday season by decking the halls at the historic Boise Depot! Festive volunteers are needed to help dress the Depot and surrounding grounds in its holiday best. Volunteers will help string lights and set up Christmas trees for the community to enjoy during the holiday season. So gather your winter coats, stocking caps, and bring your holiday cheer!

PARK AMBASSADORS

Park Ambassadors promote community stewardship and educate park users at Boise’s most popular parks. As a participant, you will be given all the tools and training you need to share useful information and foster greater appreciation for the historic and natural significance of our parks.

ADOPT-A-PARK

Groups can make a year-long commitment to help us maintain one of Boise’s many parks. Some of the tasks include removing graffiti, picking up litter, filling “mutt mitt” dispensers, painting site amenities, raking leaves, mulching trees, and refurbishing picnic tables. In exchange, the Department recognizes adopting groups via signage in the park.

SERVICE PROJECTS

Service projects can be scheduled throughout the season. These are typically one-time efforts that range from 3 to 5 hours, depending on location and group size. Common projects include park spruce-ups, tree mulching, amenity painting and repair, trash pick-up, and tree wrapping. PARKS.CITYOFBOISE.ORG • (208) 608-7680

LEARN SOMETHING NEW

bit.ly/BPRCommEd

CONSERVATION STATIONS

While visiting Boise’s parks, you may stumble across a Conservation Station, a new discovery based program where park visitors randomly encounter a station and learn about our natural environment. If you come across one, take a few minutes to take a look and learn something new.

FIELD GUIDE TO BOISE’S BIRDS

Birds can be found in just about every setting within the city, from urban microparks to the sprawling foothills that border our northeastern edge. They visit backyard feeders, perch in low shrubs and on tall structures, swim in our river, lakes, and ponds, nest in our trees and soar overhead. A variety of habitats in and around the city support and attract hundreds of species, and we invite you to explore some of those that are most common. The Field Guide to Boise’s Birds is a hit, and is available for free online. A printed version is also available for purchase at the Boise Parks and Recreation Administration Office, at a cost of $8.00 plus tax.

NATURE GUIDE FOR BOISE’S PARKS

The online Nature Guide for Boise’s Parks is made available to help you answer the question, “What was that?” If you ever find yourself in Boise parks and see a plant, tree, or animal that you can’t identify, log onto the Nature Guide or contact us to help you get an answer.

PARK TOURS

Thanks to our dedicated and knowledgeable staff and volunteers, we are excited to offer a variety of park and facility tours throughout the year. These range from historical tours of some of Boise’s oldest and unique facilities to tours that engage you in a park’s natural environment. Birds for All Seasons, October 14 We are proud to partner with the Golden Eagle Audubon Society on a series of free birding tours, being offered in Boise parks. Knowledgeable bird enthusiasts from Golden Eagle will introduce participants to the joys of birding and guide tours highlighting the myriad of birds that can be found in and around Boise, during different seasons of the year. Please join us for a fall birding tour of Marianne Williams Park on Saturday, October 14. Tours will last about an hour, and space is limited. Annual Fall Cemetery Tours, October 28 and 29 Join us for a walking tour of Boise’s historic Morris Hill and Pioneer Cemeteries and learn the history of the people interred there. Cemetery tours highlight some of the symbolism, customs and lore associated with final resting places. Tour dates will be Saturday, October 28, and Sunday, October 29, and cost $2/ticket. Nature Tours Take a “Walk on the Wild Side” with us as we explore two of our most popular parks, Kathryn Albertson Park and the Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve. These tours highlight each park’s plants and wildlife in an educational presentation that features a peaceful setting and frequent animal encounters. Guided group tours may be requested, and will be accommodated depending on staff/volunteer availability. These opportunities and more can be found at parks.cityofboise.org/vo-learn-teer/. If you don’t find something of interest, check back regularly as we offer a variety of programs throughout the year. FALL 2017
