The Morrison Knudsen Nature Center in Boise, Idaho first opened its doors in July of 1990. Owned and operated by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, it has established itself as a premier location in the Treasure Valley for wildlife viewing, education, and experiences.
Nestled along the Boise River in the heart of the capital city, the MK Nature Center’s 4.6 acres offer various habitats and attract an array of local wildlife. Fish-viewing windows offer a “fish eye view” of native aquatic ecosystems including giant sturgeon. They even have a butterfly garden.
The visitor center has quite a few hands on experiences and displays too. Animal pelts, an indoor beehive, owls and turtles and more are waiting for you to view.
The MK Nature center is great for a quick afternoon event. It’s located right on the Boise Green Belt too! Park near the Zoo and bike or walk to the nature center. It is sure to be splendid family time.
