City of Boise purchased Hillside to the Hollow open space!
The Land Trust has successfully completed the purchase of the 59 acre parcel known as Harrison Hollow ! The Land Trust was able to raise the $580,000 needed to purchase and maintain the property.
We hope this is just the beginning as there is still over 300 acres of privately owned property in danger of being developed.
For more information on the Harrison Hollow purchase, please visit the Land Trust website at: http://www.lttv.org
As the World Turns… and the Seasons Change.

The Hillside to the Hollow Coalition was very fortunate to work with Boise's own Wide Eye Productions to produce this new video about the importance of preserving the Hillside to the Hollow area, what's at stake, and the support behind our effort.
Many thanks to the talented folks at Wide Eye for crafting this beautiful and compelling video about the Hillside to the Hollow area.
Please view the video and share it with your family and friends. Enjoy !
"Hillside to the Hollow" is Boise's last, best chance to protect approximately 300 acres of open space and trails immediately adjacent to Boise. Residents have been hiking and biking on more than 10 miles of trails in the Hillside to the Hollow open space area for years thanks to the courtesy and generosity of private land owners. Now is the time for Mayor Bieter, the Boise City Council and the Foothills Levy Committee to preserve Hillside to the Hollow.
The Hillside to the Hollow area is popular year-round. Its close proximity to Boise makes it convenient for hiking, biking, running, and dog walking. So hike it, bike it, save it, or lose it !
The Hillside to the Hollow is full of wildflowers, plants and animals. In March and April you can see the rare Aase's onion with its beautiful pink flowers. In the spring and summer you can listen to meadowlarks and watch fox pups dancing in the tall grass. In the evenings you can hear the hooting of great horned owls.
