Deck out the family in hiking attire, grab the binoculars and join the Golden Eagle Audubon Society on a half-mile hike from the West Boise Wastewater Treatment Plant to a secluded spot along the Boise River. The guided tour is about the importance of the riparian ecosystem and about the different birds who call the watershed their home. Practice calls and complete a checklist as an experienced instructor helps identify our local birds. Children are encouraged to create tissue-tube binoculars to take along the journey and make bird feeders from recycled materials once they return.
