Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve
Get Ready to Weed!
Are you a frequent visitor to the Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve? Do you live nearby or visit to birdwatch or enjoy a scenic walk? Are you ready to help improve the habitat for the birds and bugs? Do you want to make sure you don’t get “in trouble” for doing some independent weeding at the reserve?
If yes, then we want you to become a Weed Warrior and support the Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve Habitat Enhancement Project. Join BREN, the Land Trust of the Treasure Valley and our partners for the Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve Weed Warrior training and you’ll be ready to weed. You’ll learn to identify the weeds that are the priority for removal and learn the best times and methods to remove them. You’ll meet other Weed Warriors and can form teams too.
Sign up here.
Weed Warriors at Work
The mission of the City of Boise Weed Warrior program is to enrich wildlife habitat in open space reserves, parks, and along the greenbelt.
Weed Warriors work wherever weeds are found. By removing weeds, we improve the ability for native species to compete with their non-native visitors.
Our weed warriors represent all age groups.
Certified Weed Warriors will be able to develop work plans with city staff and then remove weeds with other Warriors or on their own, in the stewardship areas of their choosing. Certification involves taking a one-hour training course and participating in a weed removal workshop. Training will include plant identification, restoration of ecological systems, effective and appropriate removal methods for invasive plants, the safe use of tools, and more. Check out this map to see where Weed Warriors have been working! Each point represents a location where Warriors have removed weeds and reported their activities for tracking purposes.
