Take a Hike To Table Rock This Saturday
If you haven't been to Table Rock since the fire, there's a great reason to head that way tomorrow and check out all of the ways that it's making a comeback. There's a group meeting at 8:30 am for coffee and donuts, and then they'll hike that way. Anyone can join.
Since last fall, several groups have been hard at work planting new trees and shrubs to help the area recover after the fire that happened in June 2016, and this weekend will be the perfect chance to see the progress. It could take years for the area to fully recover, but the Bureau of Land Management, Idaho Fish and Game, and the City of Boise have been on it as much as they can, and volunteers spent a whole day last fall planting new growth.
It felt a little like the Treasure Valley took a big fat punch when the fire happened, right? What an awful night that was. But thanks to some good planning and unselfish volunteering, it's coming back. You guys rock.
There's a group getting together for a National Public Lands Day morning hike to Table Rock tomorrow, and anyone can meet up and join them. It's happening Saturday, September 29th, and geology and history lovers will meet at the Idaho Museum of Mining and Geology first and then make their way to Table Rock.
Meet at 8:30 a.m. for coffee and donuts, and the hike steps off at 9 a.m.
