Botany in Action-Firewise!

Each year we support a local endevour by volunteering some time and giving back to the community we are visiting. This year our chosen project is Firewise!

Located immediately adjacent to the Idaho Botanical Garden, the 2 acre BLM Firewise Demonstration Garden includes more than 350 native and domestic species that are being evaluated for performance and fire resistance in this climate. The garden is watered by a drip irrigation system, and gravel pathways meander around the beds.  Plant labels and educational signs are placed throughout. Pruning, gravel raking, dead-heading, and general maintenance are on-going, especially in a public garden.

Who better than a botanist at determining which flower stalks are ready to remove?!  

Come experience this local garden on the edge of the Boise Foothills.  Sunday July 27, from 8 a.m. to noon.

Transportation is porvided as well as lunch, t-shirt and a good feeling of giving back!
