About the Event
What way to better spend a springtime afternoon than walking around a beautiful garden? Spend one of your days visiting a demonstration garden and combine beautiful surroundings with learning. City Club members & guests are invited to this tour of the outdoor demonstration garden at 4:00 p.m. on May 17, 2023.
Idaho Firewise is a non-profit organization established in 2008 that coordinates, supports, and promotes wildland fire education to broaden the understanding of wildfire’s role in ecosystems, and equips and motivates those who live in or visit Idaho to reduce loss from wildfire.
Idaho Firewise staff will discuss the Home Ignition Zone concept and how to create survivable space that reduces the risk of wildfire damage to your home. Staff will cover the principles of flammable materials reduction, water conservation and maintenance techniques, and how to create firewise landscape zones. Plants to avoid will be discussed as well as those that are more fire resistant and where to use them. Many of these plants are native to the Intermountain West and appropriate for low water use gardens.
Wear comfortable shoes and enjoy some outdoor time during one of the best seasons in Boise!
