More on the Volunteer Front 

If volunteering in the wilderness isn't your thing but you'd still like to give your time to something outdoors, Boise Parks and Recreation is seeking a few good volunteers. Last year's volunteers helped to refurbish park benches, prune trees around the city, care for animals at Zoo Boise, tend flowers in the Julia Davis Rose Garden and build an amphitheater for the Foothills Learning Center. Boise Parks and Recreation estimates volunteers save the department nearly a half-million dollars each year.

A variety of volunteer positions are available, from Earth Day festivities and the Boise Riversweep to Eagle Scout projects and trail building. For more information on volunteer opportunities with Boise Parks and Recreation, visit www.cityofboise/parks/volunteers or call volunteer coordinator Jerry Pugh at 384-4240 or e-mail him at
