WINTER/SPRING 2018-19

ZOO BOISE 355 Julia Davis Dr., Boise, ID 83702 (208) 608-7760 zooboise.org

A perfect example is the Boise Outdoor Preschool at our Jim Hall Foothills Learning Center. It started as a small idea a few years ago, but really gathered steam this summer after parents let us know about their genuine interest and need for their young ones to connect with the outdoors through hands-on learning. The pilot program, which started just a few months ago, has been so well-received and popular that we’re continuing it on a month-to-month basis next year and we couldn’t be more excited. The team at the Foothills Learning Center spent the summer working on and refining a STEM based curriculum that is really the first of its kind in Boise. It provides a year-round, all season learning experience for up to 12 children each month between 3.5 and 5 years old where the outdoors is literally the classroom. The program teaches kids about ecosystems, being comfortable in nature and the principles of environmental stewardship – lessons that can never come too early. It’s all hands-on, engaging, educational fun and the team is even ready for this winter’s snow. You can learn more by visiting the Boise Environmental Education website at bee.cityofboise.org. But register your young ones quickly, because there is often a waiting list. But if the Boise Outdoor Preschool is full, there’s no question that another hidden recreational gem awaits you in these pages. You may find Boise Outdoor Preschool on page 17. Sincerely,

David Bieter Mayor (208) 608-7680 • CITYOFBOISE.ORG/PARKS

MAX PHAM HIP HOP FUND

New this year! We are proud to present the Max Pham Hip Hop Fund! $5.00 of every hip hop registration will be paid for through the generous donations and workshops provided to our community by Max Pham himself. Max sees the value in dance, hip hop in particular, and the value in community support for everyone regardless of socio-economic background. Please take a moment to read Max’s remarkable story. For more information or to donate, contact Clay Lee (208) 608-7684. Max Pham is just a kid from Boise who with the support of this community and hard work, has achieved success in dance on a global scale! Max started dancing recreationally in high school, when he realized that there were not a lot of resources to explore what dance could do for a young adolescent male. Max discovered Fort Boise Community Center and Friday Teen Night where he could use a dance room to continue working on his craft. Since then Max has built a resume full of award shows and live appearances including Super Bowl LII, the Billboard Awards, American Music Awards and Grammys. His most significant work has been his multiple international tours with Justin Timberlake and Ariana Grande.

In February 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an executive order that moved nearly 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans into 10 isolated war relocation centers. These temporary, tar paper-covered barracks, the guard towers, and most of the barbed-wire fences are gone now, but the people who spent years of their lives in the centers will never forget them.

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 with us. We’d love to hear from you!

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES http://bit.ly/BPRVolunteers

JULIA DAVIS ROSE GARDEN MARCH 20, 2019 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. Starting March 20, 2019 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. So don’t be shy – all skill levels are welcome!

RELEAF BOISE APRIL 27, 2019 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.

PARKS, MONARCHS, AND MILKWEEDS JUNE 1, 2019 Due to a marked decrease in population, the monarch butterfly has garnered nationwide support with conservation efforts aimed at preserving and monitoring their habitat. Boise Parks & Recreation is doing its part with a citizen science program that engages volunteers in milkweed site monitoring. Beginning June 1, 2019, volunteers can adopt a milkweed site for the season (June – October) and submit data reports for inclusion in a national database.

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.

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.

Even though you may have a Boise mailing address, you may not live within the Boise City limits. Questions about residency?
