Volunteering for habitat [Article and Photos]

April 14, 2014 - 9:20am -- idfg-bstuder

Idahoans care about their wildlife. It's always uplifting to me to see a group of volunteers taking time to show their appreciation and volunteer at events such as sagebrush and bitterbrush planting to restore wildlife habitat.

Volunteers recently planted over the Minidoka complex fire at Big Cottonwood Wildlife Management Area. The Times-News story and photo gallery are now online.

Interested in volunteering? You can also learn more about the history of volunteers in Idaho Fish and Game's 75th celebration page.

Volunteers needed for the food truck rally Friday, April 13

April 4, 2012 - 9:52am -- idfg-smcbride

Friday April 13,  5 – 9pm

What is the food truck rally?  The Boise Weekly summed it up best!

Food trucks have become an integral part of American food culture, providing cheap, tasty eats. They're also a source of creativity, offering new takes on classics. Now that the trend has finally parked itself in Idaho, the Food Truck Rally has become a monthly celebration of the street food scene in the Treasure Valley.

Because they're mobile, sometimes it can be hard to find the food truck you're looking for, but the Food Truck Rally has changed that, allowing the navigationally challenged to enjoy Boise's street food without having to decipher a map or consult a smartphone. If you haven't tried some of these mobile meal merchants, the Rally is your best bet.

Although these vendors are often genre-bending and category-defying, they all provide comfort food that will stick to your ribs and warm you up as the weather gets colder. You can also warm your soul since this month's rally is located at—and benefits—the MK Nature Center.

Volunteers are needed! Come help out and have some fun.

Sign up here for a shift and have time to enjoy the rally too!    http://tinyurl.com/c846c5r

Do you know of any eagle scout projects?

I have two young men looking for eagle scout projects. They would like to do something for the fish and game. One asked about sagebrush restoration or other indigenous plant restoration. But they would be willing to take on several other projects. Generally eagle projects take 100 to 150 man hours and need to have challenging leadership building traits. Please let me know if there is a certain person I need to contact for this information.
