Description: Fort Boise is at the confluence of the Snake, Boise, and Owyhee Rivers. Cottonwoods and willows line the waterways, with wetlands and artificial impoundments surrounded by cattail, bulrush, and sedges. Idaho’s most dependable location for thousands of Snow and Greater White-fronted Geese (March 15-April 15). Common nesters include Cinnamon and Blue-winged Teal, and Red-tailed and Swainson’s Hawks. Large Great Blue Heron and Double-crested Cormorant rookery at the west end. Areas adjacent to the Snake River are open year-round. The wetlands along the entrance road are closed from Feb 1 - July 31, but birding from the road is still good.
