Foothills East Reserve

ACRES: 30  |  TRAILS: 0

Protected in 1970

Foothills East Reserve is a 30 acre natural area with trails and is in the northeast Boise foothills neighborhood. The site was acquired in the 1970s through the development review process when residential development was occurring in that area.

Health of the Reserve

In 2018, ecological health of the reserve was assessed by field technicians. Monitoring plots were strategically located across the reserve, data was collected at each point to include a species inventory, percent cover of structural functional groups (like invasive species vs. natives), shrub density, erosion and soil stability assessments, and others. Those data are summarized below and help to guide future management treatments and practices for Foothills East Reserve.
