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.
Bat Roosting Box
Idaho is home to 14 different bat species, and they all need a safe place to live. Due to habitat loss, there is an ever growing need for safe nesting places, including roosting boxes.
Located adjacent to the pond on the south end of Parkcenter Park, this conservation station is dedicated to the magnificent bat. From eating thousands of insects a night (including everyone's favorite mosquito), to pollinating our favorite fruits, and even contributing to medical research, bats are very important to our ecosystem. Check out this station and see why Boise parks have gone batty!
