Side-channel construction is complete, but our channel crossings have not yet been installed. We invite you to visit and take a walk along the greenbelt side of our Diane Moore Nature Center any time! Our grand re-opening with access to the river side of the nature center is expected by 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:

Our songbird 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 events page to see available dates.

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.
