A healthier landscape is taking root on the hillsides at the City of Boise's Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve in West Boise. Come learn about the Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve Habitat Project at this public open house. The one-hour program starts at 6:00 pm. Eric Willadsen from the Land Trust of the Treasure Valley will introduce the project and provide an update on progress so far and plans for 2018. Martha Brabec from Boise Parks and Recreation will explain the Habitat Enhancement Plan and the need to remove some plants from the reserve. Conner Jackson will elaborate on the russian olive tree that's abundant at the reserve. Local plant expert Roger Rosentreter will bring us up close and personal with some of the reserve's native plants by sharing information about their traditional uses and unusual characteristics. There will be informational tables from many organizations to visit before and after the program, and the Boise WaterShed exhibits will be open for children to enjoy.

Sponsored by the Land Trust of the Treasure Valley, Boise River Enhancement Network, and City of Boise. Project partners include U.S Fish and Wildlife Service, Idaho Office of Refugees by Jannus, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Idaho, Golden Eagle Audubon Society, Intermountain Bird Observatory, Boise State University, The Wetlands Group, Idaho Fish and Game, Idaho Weed Awareness Campaign, and Partners for Clean Water.
