Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. At least not here. Not in our little corner of Idaho.
The Idaho Foundation is cleaning up the recently acquired Gregerson property, the last large privately owned parcel of land in the 450 acre Barber Pool Wildlife Preserve. Instead of being developed into yet another massive subdivision, this 36 acre parcel of land – with nearly a mile of river frontage – will now be protected and maintained along with the rest of the Preserve for the benefit of wildlife and future generations of Boiseans. You’re feeling better already, right?
Well, here’s some more good news. Your donation of time, money, and/or construction equipment will help us properly recycle and dispose of over a thousand cubic yards of abandoned vehicles, farm equipment, old tires, discarded lumber, broken down appliances and assorted other junk. Removal of these items will permit us to move forward with restoration of this property to its natural beauty. Already, with the help of generous donors, the strong backs of neighborhood volunteers, and equipment donated by local contractors, we’ve removed over 1100 tires, 20 large dumpsters of recyclables, and 17 dumpsters of trash, as well as numerous old cars, trucks and farm vehicles.
But we still have a long way to go. So please help us clean up the Gregerson property. I guarantee you will feel better about this messed up world. The pictures of our happy volunteers prove it!
