Morrison-Knudsen Nature Center
Offering a view of the Boise River's underwater world, this unique and interesting center allows visitors to see what happens under the rippling surface of a river. Hands-on computers help visitors understand and learn about the complex world of a living river. This learning center is a must for both tourists and residents, especially if you are a science buff. You will leave the center with a new appreciation for science and river habitats. Student tours are also available.
We go there all the time! My 2 year old and baby love to watch the fish! The discovery center is very fun also! Best of all it's FREE! We went a lot during the summer and once during the fall (the trees were beautiful with the changing leaves!).
When I was a kid and so into nature, I would have spent all day at this place! Even as an adult, I thoroughly enjoyed a pleasant walk through the grounds and chances to see local fish up close. Very well done, with nice access from the greenbelt. For a free exhibit, you can't get much better!
Our 6 and 7 year old grandchildren were climbing the walls after being inside due to heavier than normal snowfall in January. We decided to check out the MK Nature Center as a way to get them out of the house and moving. We felt sure there wouldn't be much to see on a cold clear February day but thought we could let them run a bit and check it out for future exploration in the summer. The children loved the center, icy paths and all! They enjoyed seeing all the presentations about animals and birds inside the main building and really loved the nature paths outside with the fish watching windows. Even in February there were also lots of birds and squirrels to see. After going through the Center the children enjoyed playing in the adjoining park. We can't wait to return when the weather is warmer.
This is a free visit that someone with a small interest in the local flora and fauna of Boise Idaho could enjoy for a half an hour, or three to four. It hosts Fish, Birds, Predators, and plantlife from around the area in a very easy to view manner.
I go once or twice a year just to see it again.
This community theater resembles a dome shaped hat sitting on top of a plain, almost dumpy, body of a building.
But inside the Boise Little Theater, there is nothing plain about the acting. One of the longest running community ...
