Visit Us!

Once our site re-opens after side-channel construction is complete, we invite you to visit and take a walk at our Diane Moore Nature Center any time! Our grand re-opening is expected in late 2022 or 2023.

We conduct habitat restoration activities year round at our river research station. To schedule a volunteer work day or habitat restoration activity with your company, school, or organization, email Heidi Ware Carlisle: HeidiWare@boisestate.edu

Our banding station is open to the public on select dates from June to October. We offer drop-in dates for members of the public, as well as formal field trips for schools and groups. Visit our Eventbrite Page to see available dates, register to visit, or schedule a field trip.

About the Boise River Research Station

Project Overview

IBO’s Diane Moore Nature Center makes hands-on-science opportunities similar to our Lucky Peak research station more widely available at an easily-accessible site that is open year-round.

We use these 20 acres of riverside habitat near the Barber Pool Conservation Area to provide research and education opportunities to students and families throughout the Treasure Valley.
