Announcements and Upcoming Events

Spring work at the Diane Moore Nature Center

This spring will be all hands on deck at the Diane Moore Nature Center. We need volunteers to plant shrubs and help with other habitat restoration projects at the site. Sign up for updates using this google form.

IBO shirts for sale

Be sure to visit our Bonfire shop, where we have a number of shirt designs available. This year we’re excited about a new Lucky Peak shirt featuring songbirds, raptors, and owls. This shirt design was created by talented artist, Emma Regnier, who worked on the 2022 Lucky Peak raptor crew!

IBO migration book available

We worked with Biology Undergraduate and Local Artist, Anna Connington, to write and illustrate a children’s book all about migration. The story follows a Wilson’s Warbler from her nesting grounds in Alaska, to IBO’s banding station at Lucky Peak, and then to her wintering grounds in Mexico! If you’d like a copy of your own, or want to help get more copies to Idaho classrooms, visit our PonyUp project page.

VIP student opportunities

The second semester of our VIP(Vertically Integrated Project) course is underway! This opportunity is open to undergraduate and graduate students at Boise State University and College of Western Idaho. Learn more about our VIP program.

Vehicle donations needed

We’re on the search for used ATVs or UTVs, and a 4-wheel-drive truck or SUV. Do you or someone you know have a vehicle you would like to donate? We could use vehicles like this for our Team Goshawk work in southern Idaho, restoration work at the Diane Moore Nature Center, and our Lucky Peak project. Email for details.

Online volunteer training this winter

We have a number of new volunteer needs and we’re excited to tell you about them! We’ll be holding job-specific volunteer information sessions this winter over Zoom. If you’d like to attend (or watch a recording) sign up on this google form to let us know what you’re most interested in.
