History Logs

Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Boise

Total Budget: $1,540

Areas of Focus: Peacebuilding and conflict prevention, Water, sanitation and hygiene, Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Peace: General

Summary: Purchase / install a 'peace pole' displaying children's stories and descriptions of local native flora/fauna for general public at the Rotary Wetland Peace Preserve in Boise, Idaho.

With continued growth and congestion in the Treasure valley, there is need for open space where people can enjoy a natural setting within the urban area. Given the turmoil of the past year, including political and racial tensions, a setting focused on peace and tranquility is clearly valuable. Also, the Boise Parks Department is looking for help developing and maintaining an 18 acre site along the Boise river that is infested with non-native invasive plants and hoping to educate the public about the value of native species. Native species will help reduce river bank erosion and improve Boise River water quality. In response to these needs, 9 Treasure Valley Clubs have come together to partner with BPD to develop the Rotary Wetland Pease Preserve. The RWPP will include "peace poles" provide by each club. These poles will display monthly updated peace and/or nature themed children's stories, plus descriptive content about native species. Requested funds will support the Boise Club's pole, which is expected to be installed late in 2021-22 fiscal year. Rotarians are providing volunteer labor to plant and maintain native species in the preserve, plus plan the peace pole content.
