Get to Know Your Public Land in Almost Your Own Backyard!
The Foothills Learning Center and Idaho Conservation League team up to offer these short hiking “tours” of City owned foothills reserves. These eleven reserves are a growing and interconnected system that provides environmental, social, health, economic and related benefits. Maybe you are already familiar with the trails, but you don't know the history and plan for these special places. Come find out! All hikes no more than 3 miles, free, and family friendly! Pre-Registration is required!
In 2003, the City purchased the 58-acre Boyer-Satz property on bench to the north of Table Rock using Foothills Levy Funds. As a part of the City’s 2002 development agreement with Homer Wise, the developer of Boulder Heights, several other parcels adjacent to the Boyer-Satz property have been acquired by the City as each phase of Boulder Heights is completed. Currently, three other parcels totaling 106 acres have been added. Upon completion of the development, 207 acres will be donated to the City. In 2013, the Warm Springs Mesa Neighborhood Association completed a Neighborhood Plan. In that plan, they asked to name the neighboring City owned open space reserve Mesa Reserve and the City Council approved the plan.
