MK Nature Center

The Idaho Fish and Game MK Nature Center offers a unique wildlife experience on a 4.6-acre site along the Boise River Greenbelt. The StreamWalk and Visitor Center provide a glimpse of Idaho's many landscapes and abundant wildlife. Underwater viewing windows along the stream walk give visitors a fish-eye view of the world.


Driving Directions

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.
