Conservation Projects

June 4 Volunteer Project

The Ted Trueblood Chapter has signed an agreement with the City of Boise thru their Adopt-A-Habitat program. We are sponsoring 13.5 acres of river front riparian ground located between Mary Anne Williams Park and the Boise River in east Boise. 

We will have three to four volunteer projects per year at this site. It’s in Boise so you will have easy access to the projects and a city park restroom. Parking is beside the Greenbelt so if you choose to you can take a walk before or after the volunteer project. We encourage you to bring your kids to join us for these conservation projects.

Our first project is on June 4th starting at 9 am running to about noon.

We will be removing noxious weeds including Houndstongue (Cynoglossum officinale) and Spotted knapweed (Centaurea stoebe),  wrapping (or rewrapping) cottonwoods for beaver protection and potentially closing some unnecessary social trails. 

We also will clean up trash as we work to remove the noxious weeds. 

The city will provide needed tools and materials. Just dress appropriately for the weather, grab some gloves, sunblock, a bottle of water and join us for our first project at our sponsored site along the Boise River.
