Features and Amenities


The MKNC is located between Municipal Park and the Boise Greenbelt. The Center is not obvious from the road - it is situated behind the Fish and Game Headquarters building on Walnut Street.



Dogs are not allowed at the MKNC. We love them too, but we thank you to please leave them safely at home while you visit us!
