Volunteers Needed for Wildlife Habitat Restoration

In the summer of 2016, the Mile Marker 14 wildfire roared across Boise River Wildlife Management Area, incinerating 4,000 acres of prime wildlife habitat, which served as critical winter range for more than 6,000 mule deer.

Here’s your chance to help restore what was lost.

Volunteers are needed to jumpstart recovery by planting seedlings in the burned area along State Highway 21 near Lucky Peak Reservoir. On consecutive Saturdays (March 10, 17 and 24) beginning at 9:00am, volunteers will gather at the Mk Nature Center in Boise and caravan to the planting sites. Volunteers can also drive directly to the planting sites if they so choose.
