FIRE! Wildfires in the Foothills
By now it should be hot and dry in Boise and the hills are ripe for fire. Come and learn about the history of fire in the foothills, how fires have changed in recent years, and what you can do to prevent them. Watch a mini forest fire demo ignite before your eyes!  Meet a wildland firefighter, see and try on the gear they wear, and maybe even get to climb around on a brush truck if they are not all out on fires! Watch some amazing footage of past fires in the foothills. This will be a fun and informative day for all ages.
