The Nature Conservancy in Idaho supports the continued conservation of the Boise Foothills for people and nature.
As the population of the Treasure Valley grows, the importance of the Foothills as home to unique flora and fauna, and open space for people to enjoy, becomes increasingly critical. It is here that the sagebrush-steppe ecosystem of the Columbia Plateau meets the forested ecosystem of the Middle Rockies. The largest mule deer herd in the state spends the winters here. Rare plants – some found nowhere else on Earth – grow along the ridges.
Voters like you have made the conservation of the Boise Foothills possible. The 2001 Foothills Serial Levy allowed the City of Boise to acquire over 10,763 acres of open space and manage these natural areas for wildlife, clean water supplies and as places where children and families can enjoy the outdoors.
We need your continued support to build on what we’ve accomplished together – to protect Boise’s quality of life, our open spaces and natural areas for everyone.
