Morrison Knudsen Nature Center
The Morrison Knudsen Nature Center offers a unique wildlife experience on a 4.6-acre site along the Boise River Greenbelt. The StreamWalk and Visitor Center provide a glimpse of Idaho's many landscapes and abundant wildlife. Underwater viewing windows along the stream walk give visitors a fish-eye view of the world.
Always go on my weekends off from work that is whenever I can and ride my bike down the Greenbelt to enjoy the bike trails and having my lunch. Stopping by the Kristen Armstrong park to see the MK Nature Center and the wildlife conservation of all different species of plants birds insects animals. The most I really enjoy is viewing the trout and salmon through the glass and learning the life stages of these various fish and how important the ecosystem is for all of us.
How many cities have a pristine mountain river running through them with native steelhead and salmon? The nature center highlights the specialness of Boise's natural environment. You can see a large variety of fish, and a few native, freshwater crustaceans, there are birdwatching stations and natural gardens for bees, hummingbirds and butterflies. It's a great place to learn about the local, and regional outdoors.
A great place to see native fish from trout to sturgeon living in their native habitat. You get to learn about the life cycle of many fish plus the insects and habitat that supports them. A wonderful setting by the Boise river and very well done.
I've been coming here since I was a kid and it's always been a great place to walk around and enjoy nature.
This was absolutely beautiful! I went with a group of friends for an afternoon outing and we all enjoyed ourselves a bunch! It would be a great place for family outings with young or older children! The flowers and little surprise corners were probably my favorite parts (not to mention FREE).
