We’re very thankful for the hard work of these Eagle Scouts!
Brandon Parrish from Troop 85 worked diligently this winter to create a set of benches for the Diane Moore Nature Center! These will help us make sure that you will have a comfortable place to sit and enjoy whenever you visit our Boise River banding station. We think that it’s fantastic that these benches were built based on the original design from famous conservationist and wildlife ecologist, Aldo Leopold! This bench pattern is constructed so that they are comfortable to sit on and also stack nicely to fit into our shipping container for storage.
Ian Smith worked to build and install dog waste stations at the Diane Moore Nature Center. Not only will these stations help improve things for visitors to the Boise River Research Station, but they will benefit wildlife as well! As part of this project, Ian installed signs created by the Boise River Enhancement Network. These humorous signs attract attention and help educate about the importance of keeping pet waste out of our waterways.
