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.
As their name suggests, cavity nesters are not able to create their own nests, and instead rely on abandoned nests or empty cavities to raise their young. Each cavity nester is unique and has its own requirements for their nests.
Located between the pond and playground in Demeyer Park, the nesting boxes at this conservation station show some similiarities and differences in cavity structure. Check out this station and learn about the wide variety of cavity nesters in our community and the different types of bird boxes you can have to help provide them with habitat!
