Local Service Project: Hyatt Hidden Lakes Willow Harvesting

November 1 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us as we tend to a Boise park gem and harvest willow cuttings from the Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve. Willows provide important wildlife habitat as cover for nesting birds and provide forage for herbivores. Under the right conditions, willows can grow rapidly from cuttings and provide effective soil stabilization along stream banks or in other highly erodible areas. We will meet on campus in front of the east entrance to the Student Union at 2:30pm (right on Bronco Lane at the parking meters) and travel to the the reserve, located at 5301 N Maple Grove Road.
