Boise Urban Garden School

2995 N Five Mile Rd

BugsThe 1,500-square-foot barn-shaped education center features a commercial kitchen, administrative office, classroom space and restrooms.

The Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS) is a specialized, inquiry-based education organization that utilizes an organic garden setting as the foundation for our unique learning environment. BUGS teaches youth and adults the fundamentals of gardening though science, health and environmental  lesson plans. The BUGS program knows that a student that is able to dig in the soil, plant a seed, and watch it grow, is excited to eat the fruits of their labor, and will understand the science behind a sprouting seed or photosynthesis.

Boise Parks and Recreation's Conservation Stations are a discovery based environmental education program designed to educate the community about a variety of conservation related topics. While in the parks, visitors may come across a station and learn about our natural environment while recreating in Boise parks.

Pollinator SignPollinators
Pollinators are a vital part of our ecosystem and help facilitate a plant's ability to reproduce. About one-third of the United States food crops rely on the help they receive from pollinators. Without these important insects, we would lose many fruits and vegetables. However, due to habitat loss and development, many pollinator populations are in decline. Check out this station and observe pollinators in action!
