Canyon County Parks’ place-based, academic field trips are available by reservation only (free of charge) to schools and other education-focused organizations. To browse our offerings, visit our Field Trips webpage.

We also partner with Boise State University’s Desert Studies Institute to provide educational programs and scholarly presentations about the prehistory, history, ecology and politics of Idaho’s desert environments and deserts worldwide. The programs are presented to enrich the understanding and appreciation of complex desert ecosystems in Idaho and to promote their perpetual preservation as educational resources for the future. For more information, visit the Desert Studies Institute homepage.

The Idaho-Oregon Snake River Water Trail is a coalition of partners representing federal and local government agencies, nonprofit organizations, private businesses, and citizens with an interest in the Snake River.  The Water Trail Coalition was formed in December 2009.  Canyon County Parks was awarded a National Park Service Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program grant to plan a water trail along the Snake River in Idaho and Oregon, with the goal of helping communities define and influence future river recreation through public planning processes and partnerships.  The Idaho-Oregon Snake River Water Trail stretches from Three Island Crossing (ID) to Farewell Bend State Park (OR). Visit our website to launch your Snake River adventure!
