In Spring 2022 the Ted Trueblood Chapter entered into an Adopt a Habitat agreement with the City of Boise to provide volunteer efforts to steward the riparian area along the Boise River. Work activities include removal of invasive plants and noxious weeds, planting native species, and potentially projects to restore damaged locations of stream bank along the Boise River.
This is an opportunity for the Ted Trueblood Chapter to extend its efforts to improve habitat along the Boise River. It is also a continuing involvement in this area of the Barber Valley where past and current projects have been implemented. In fact, we found one old photo from our archives where in November 2005 we were using some of the future park site as a source of willow for some riparian work on Alta Harris Creek.
As part of our stewardship in this area we also participate in the Boise River ReWild Project where we now have three plots in the park under the Adopt a Plot program.
