Conservation Station

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.

Cavity Nesters

As their name suggests, cavity nesters are not able to create their own nests, and instead rely on abandoned nests or empty cavities to raise their young. Each cavity nester is unique and has its own requirements for their nests.

Located between the pond and playground in DeMeyer Park, the nesting boxes at this conservation station show some similarities and differences in cavity structure. Check out this station and learn about the wide variety of cavity nesters in our community and the different types of bird boxes you can have to help provide them with habitat!

About DeMeyer Park

The 10-acre parcel that is now DeMeyer Park was given to the city in 1977 by Albert and Hazel DeMeyer. The park is the site of the original ranch home with barns, silo and pond.

A plaque in the park states: "DeMeyer Park:  In Honor of Our Children Arlen, Eugene, Joanna--Dedicated to Children:  May They Play Here:  In Freedom, With Harmony And Happiness"

Joanna "Jody" DeMeyer later contributed more than $200,000 for the design of a shelter/restroom structure.
