Join us for a moderately long day hike of about 12+ miles on the Foothills Shingle Creek to Dry Creek Loop. Hiking time expected to be about 6-7 hours. The ground might be frozen at the higher elevations. Contact Carl if interested and for the meeting location.
Day Trip Trips
Join us for one of our favorite fall swift water floats, the North Fork of the Payette River between McCall and Cascade. We'll drive up from Boise early in the morning, leave a vehicle at the take out, drive to the put in (accessible to higher clearance cars) and launch. Participants must be able to avoid river bank snags, make fast turns, and ferry. The float is about 10 miles and will take 4 to 6 hours depending on the group. Small craft - inflatable kayaks, canoes - are appropriate. Be prepared for chilly morning temperatures. No dogs, please.
This year's Boise Front 4th of July Butterfly Count will be held on Sunday, July 8th. Weather permitting it will be an all-day affair. We'd love to have you join us.
We will meet in the parking lot of the 17th and State Marketplace on the corner of – you guessed it – 17th and State Street (across the street from the Albertsons parking lot at 16th and State).
Meet at the Succor Creek State Natural Area Campground at 9 am on Sunday June 3. Help pick up trash along the road and in the campground as well as remove scotch thistle from the area.
Bring: work gloves, shovel, water, lunch
No need to sign up - just show up!
Help monitor butterfly population trends in areas near Boise, including Military Reserve and Bogus Basin. Participants should be prepared for a day of hiking: daypack, sunscreen, lunch, snacks, water, sunhat, and sturdy footwear. A butterfly net is helpful but not required, as is a clipboard and tethered pen.
A registration fee of $4 per person will be collected; the fee helps the North American Butterfly Association compile the results of this nationwide survey.
