Conservation Station and Pollinator Garden

Boise Parks and Recreation's Conservation Stations are a discovery based environmental education program designed to educate the community about a variety of conservation related topics. While in the parks, visitors may come across a station and learn about our natural environment while recreating in Boise parks.


Pollinators are a vital part of our ecosystem and help facilitate a plant's ability to reproduce. About one-third of the United States food crops rely on the help they receive from pollinators. Without these important insects, we would lose many fruits and vegetables. However, due to habitat loss and development, many pollinator populations are in decline. Check out this station and observe pollinators in action!

Smoking Prohibition

Smoking and vaping are prohibited in all City of Boise parks, including within 20 feet of the Boise River Greenbelt, except in designated areas within Ann Morrison and Julia Davis Parks and at city-owned golf courses.


Unauthorized vehicles will be towed at owner's risk and expense. You can contact Boise Valley Towing by calling (208) 389-9707.
