Goat head pickup and Dog Poop Scooping, We Need Your Help

We love to utilize the trails along the East End and want to take care of the issues that we have with the goat heads and dog poop along the way.  On Aug. 2nd, 7:30am, we are planning on meeting at the pump house at Quarry View Park.  Please bring with you some gloves, a shovel or rake and some small grocery sacks if you want to pick up the poop.

Japanese Beetle Update

The Japanese Beetle survey traps have been out for about a month and they indicate that the adult beetles are just beginning to fly. This is about the time we predicted first flight based on historical data, and with that in mind we expect peak flight to occur around mid-July. Here is a short update:


1)      The first two beetles of 2014 were captured Thursday, June 19, in a trap on the                 Greenbelt on the south side of the Boise River

2)      From that day to the present the traps collected 24 beetles – 21 males/3 females – with             one up in the West State St treatment area, and the rest in Warm Springs/Municipal             Park

3)      Currently the next granular treatment is planned to take place during the week of July             21-25 (not official, yet, but this is what has been  discussed with Pro Care)
