Boise parks adds online nature guide

Ever see an insect, tree, or animal in Boise's parks and wonder what it was? The Boise Parks and Recreation Department has your answer. The new guide is at parks.cityofboise.org. The guide shows mammals, birds of prey, insects, water birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles, trees and plants.

Local photographers Daniel Gonzalez, Bob Ellis and Bill Grange donated photos, most of which were taken in Boise's parks, reserves or other facilities. The guide is offered through the city's Boise Environmental Education (BEE) program.
