How can I help?
Become a Certified Weed Warrior
The Weed Warrior Volunteer Program was created in 2016 to empower community members to help City of Boise staff manage non-native, invasive plants (NNIs) on open space reserves, City Parks, and neighborhoods. Volunteers are taught to properly identify and manage specific species of NNIs using appropriate integrated pest management techniques.
Right now, we don’t have any Certified Weed Warrior Volunteer trainings scheduled. If you would like to be notified when Weed Warrior trainings commence, please email Martha Brabec. Until then, please join us at a public Group Weed Warrior Workday*.
Join a Weed Warrior Workday
Want to help without becoming a Weed Warrior? We offer Group Weed Warrior Workdays throughout the spring/summer/fall on City of Boise open space reserves — no advanced training required. These NNI management events are one to two-hours, led by Parks staff, and a great way to start learning how to identify and remove NNIs in the Boise area.
Interested in joining a Group Weed Warrior Workday? Please visit this webpage to see our upcoming events*.
*Currently no events are scheduled due to COVID-19. Please continue to check back for more future opportunities.
