The MK Nature Center (Morrison Knudsen Nature Center) offers a sample of wild Idaho on a 4.6-acre site along the Boise River Greenbelt. The Nature Center's outdoor nature walk and indoor visitor's center provide a glimpse of Idaho's many landscapes and abundant wildlife. Viewing windows along the outside streamwalk, which is the "heart and soul" of the center, provide a fish-eye view of the stream environment. Nature center "visitors" include the regulars such as great blue herons, quail, muskrats, and mink. Seasonal "visitors" include a wide array of songbirds, an occasional hawk or owl, beaver, fox, skunks, and even mule deer. The nature walk also includes a butterfly/hummingbird garden and a formal garden.
Field trips and tours are available; call or check the website for details.
The MK Nature Center is owned and operated by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.
