Lend a Hand at Thousand Springs

Our state parks have received severe budget cuts, so volunteer help is more important than ever.

There will be an active volunteer effort at Thousand Springs State Park this spring and summer. By pitching in, you can assure that this park--consisting of five units--continues to protect beautiful springs, canyons, hiking trails, wildlife habitat and historic facilities.

The next volunteer outing will be March 27, planting trees at Billingsley Creek.

Email if you would like to participate.

The Nature Conservancy donated the Ritter Island portion of Thousand Springs to the State of Idaho in December 2006. We also played important roles in the creation of the Box Canyon and Billingsley Creek units.

Our state parks deserve an adequately funded department. They also deserve our help. This park can continue to be a jewel in the Hagerman Valley. Please lend a hand for our parks!
