ESTHER SIMPLOT PARK - Boise, ID

IMA planted wetland sod, bare root sedges and rushes, willows, and upland shrubs in this newly created park in Boise. We also excavated and lined a pond in a wetland area. Esther Simplot Park was created as a green space for people and as riparian habitat within the city along the Boise River.
