Fall 2020 Outdoor Field Study 

Join Boise Parks and Recreation for our new Outdoor Field Study program, geared toward students participating in virtual learning during the 2020-2021 school year. These two-and-a-half hour afternoon sessions are designed to get youth outside and keep them active and engaged through environmental education. Our team members at the Boise Urban Garden School (2995 W. Five Mile Rd.) and the Foothills Learning Center (3188 Sunset Peak Rd.) will facilitate hands-on activities and lessons covering a new topic each week. Cost is $10 per student per session. This is a drop-off program and supervision will be provided by the facility.

Sessions start Monday, September 14 and continue each weekday afternoon, Monday through Friday.
