Subject: [External] So much has happened at Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve! Join us to hear all about it!

Dear Friend of Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve,

Thank you for attending a Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve program or helping on a work day. A great deal has been accomplished at the reserve in the past year, and we’d love to tell you about it. Please join us for a presentation on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 to hear what’s been accomplished and learn how you can participate in future activities.

For the past year, community members have worked with the City of Boise to improve the habitat on the west hillsides of the Reserve. Thousands of native plants have been planted, and many unwanted trees and invasive weeds have been removed throughout the reserve. The Hillside Habitat Improvement Project has helped the City meet objectives established in the Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve Master Plan including reduction of weed populations and fire hazard and establishment of hillside plant species to increase habitat diversity.

Please Join the City of Boise Parks and Recreation, the Boise River Enhancement Network, Golden Eagle Audubon Native Plant Network, and Land Trust of the Treasure Valley for a presentation on February 20, 2019 at the Boise WaterShed Environmental Education Center, 11818 W. Joplin Rd., from 5:45 – 7:00 pm.

Public Program: Taking Care of the Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve

Martha Brabec, Boise Open Space Restoration Specialist and community groups will report on what’s been accomplished in the last 15 months. The Hyatt Reserve Hillside Habitat Improvement Plan will be reviewed. Information will be provided about how citizens can continue to care for the reserve, including the Hyatt Reserve Weed Warrior program, the Native Plant Network, and future planting events. There will also be a photo presentation featuring the reserve’s numerous species of birds.

We hope you’ll be able to join us for the public program. Children are welcome to visit the Boise WaterShed exhibits during the Open House.

Interested but can’t attend? Please let us know if you’d like to be added to the Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve volunteer list by emailing
