WHITNEY COMMUNITY CENTER

In September, the City of Boise discovered a simple, honest mistake in the paperwork for the Open Space and Clean Water levy, which was originally approved by voters in 2015 with an extraordinary 74 percent of the vote. It was an embarrassing error that would have halved our ability to expand protections for the Foothills and the Boise River. After discovering the error, we immediately informed the public and found a remedy, which was the Nov. 7 vote to amend the original levy allowing us to collect the full $10 million for the fund. Boiseans responded in a big way with 83 percent of the vote – a huge number in any election. I cannot express how proud I am to be part of a community who values open space and clean water so much. The simple fact that Boiseans agreed to tax themselves to pay for expanding protections in the Boise Foothills and along the Boise River watershed says volumes about who we are as a community. But November’s vote to approve the levy amendment, despite our mistake, was phenomenal. The easy path for voters would have been to dismiss the amendment and not give us an opportunity to make it right. Instead Boiseans underlined their commitment to our natural environment and set a great example for our children about the importance of government accountability. Thank you to each and every voter who supported the amendment, allowing us to fulfill the vision and will of the voters. There is no greater city than Boise, Idaho. And the values of our residents – clearly on display on Election Day in November -- will ensure it remains that way long into the future.

JANUARY 13 – Over and Under the Snow

Learn about animals that survive Idaho’s winters both above and below the snow. Explorer our “bear den”, crawl through “subnivean” tunnel as the mice do, and understand how snow can actually keep animals warm! We’ll have warm drinks, Snow experts, and snowflake making.

Develop your explorer skills by starting a naturalist journal, learning to identify plants, and completing our orienteering scavenger hunt. Learn about Idaho’s explorer history and check out some tools used when the pioneers began moving west.

MARCH 10 – Birds of Prey Day!

Falcons, Hawks, Owls, and Eagles! Come get a close up view of a bird of prey, discover your wingspan equivalent, and dress up like an owl. Guided birding hikes will start every hour with local experts and Idaho Bird Observatory’s, Heidi Ware, will be on hand to talk about birdbanding! There will also be crafts and owl pellet dissection!

APRIL 14 – Puddles and Rainclouds!

Spring brings rain and snowmelt, bringing life back to our foothills. Join us to explore what is in the clouds and the importance of our trickling streams and small ponds to Boise’s ecosystem! We’ll have cloud-in-a-jar demonstrations, amphibians (they live in puddles!) to look at, and a spring scavenger hunt. You can even make your own rain cloud mobile!

JANUARY 10 – Avian Adventures Abroad: Peru

From its Amazonian lowlands and coastal deserts to the high Andes and Sacred Valley of the Incas, Peru’s diverse habitats host more than 1,850 bird species. Local birders Jim and Nancy DeWitt spent three weeks there in 2016 and saw over 530 kinds of birds, plus numerous mammals, amazing flora, and breath-taking scenery. Some highlights from their photo journey will include displaying cocks-ofthe-rock, jewel-like tanagers and hummingbirds, parrot licks, Peruvian pelicans, and even a few species familiar to Idaho birders. Come for the Horned Screamers, stay for the Inca Kola!

FEBRUARY 21 – Winter Tracking: Animals signs in the Snow

Learn from Ray Vizgirdas how to investigate the scenes and signatures of animals in the snow. In winter tracking, the stories are etched by wild beings, the parchment is frozen water and the pages are both fleeting and unending. Learn this new form of “literacy” from a tracking expert who will teach you how to “read” the snow and gather a treasury of information about the furry, feathered and fascinating lives of the characters in winter’s story. *This is a third Wednesday so as not to conflict with Valentine’s Day

MARCH 14 – Hull’s Gulch Hike

Ray Vizgerdas, Field Biologist, will lead a Guided 2-mile hike in Hulls Gulch Reserve, identifying the trees around the foothills, and looking for signs of wildlife. The sun will be setting as we hike, so bring a flashlight! We hope to spot some of the Owls of Hull’s Gulch on their nightly hunt for a meal.

APRIL 11 – Morel Hunting 101

Curious about morel hunting? These little morsels are easy to relatively identify, widespread and give us a great reason to get out of the house and onto our public lands in the spring. Join us for an informal discussion on mushroom-picking ecology, etiquette and edibility with Idaho Conservation League’s experienced morel hunter, Jonathan Oppenheimer. Learn about foraging and cleaning techniques, how to locate spots where morels and other edible mushrooms might be found, and how to cook these delicious mushrooms. All attendees will be sworn to secrecy.

MAY 9 – Wild Edibles of the Foothills

Ray Vizgirdas, field biologist and author of Wild Plants of the Sierra Nevada, will take us on an interpretive walk and tour of useful plants, both edible and medicinal, in Boise’s foothills. Our natural back yard is full of plants that provide sustenance and improve health. Plant identification can be a tricky business, but Ray will guide us as we see and explore what nature has to offer.

JUNE 13 – Pollination Ecology Walk

The sagebrush-steppe slopes, meadows, and valleys of south-central Idaho offer a great array of wildflowers! These flowers and plants offer prime habitat for bees and butterflies. Hundreds of species have been recorded in the area, and many of those may be found between the Treasure Valley and Bogus Basin. We will go walking to see as many as we can find, and discover how to find, harmlessly detain, and identify butterflies and bees, while learning their lifecycle, needs, and natural history.

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 offerings and feel free to contact us. We’d love to hear from you!

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES http://parks.cityofboise.org/volunteers/

JULIA DAVIS ROSE GARDEN

You don’t need a green thumb to be a Julia Davis Rose Garden volunteer. Since 1935, the Julia Davis Rose Garden has attracted gardeners of varying expertise who share one thing in common – a passion for roses. The rose garden has always been a labor of love by and for the people of Boise, and you can help us keep the tradition alive by volunteering one morning each week through the summer. Beginning March 21, we will hold weekly work sessions from 8-11 a.m. each Wednesday through the growing season. No knowledge of plant care is required. Our professional staff will provide direction and training for anyone who is interested in lending a hand.

RELEAF BOISE

APRIL 28, 2018

Thousands of trees have been planted on public rights of way over the years through the generous labor of volunteers during this annual event. Boise’s thriving urban forest offers numerous benefits: Energy savings, improved air quality, reduced storm water runoff, increased property values, aesthetic enjoyment and more. We invite you to help us keep this rich resource thriving. You provide the labor; the City of Boise will provide the trees.

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 will recognize your group as the adopting agency via signage in the park.

ADOPT THE GREENBELT

The Adopt the Greenbelt Program engages groups in the ongoing care of the Boise River Greenbelt. Participants adopt a 2/3-mile section of the Greenbelt for a year long commitment, and visit their section at least once a month to pick up trash, inspect site amenities, and report activity to the Boise Parks and Recreation Department.

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

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. Field Guide to Boise’s Birds can be accessed for free online. A printed version is available for purchase at the Parks and Recreation Administration Office for $8.00 a piece, plus tax.

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, you may 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: We are excited 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. Tour dates are announced seasonally and registration is required. Morris Hill and Pioneer Cemeteries: Join us for a walking tour of Boise’s historic 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 are announced when determined and registration is required. Nature Tours: Take a “Walk on the Wild Side” with us as we explore some of Boise’s most popular parks. These tours highlight each park’s plants and wildlife in an educational presentation that features a peaceful setting and frequent animal encounters.
