Idaho City, ID - The Idaho City Ranger District is applying for two separate grants from the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation to help fund weed treatments along motorized and non-motorized trails.

 

The first application requests $18,500 in funding from the Off-Road Motor Vehicle Fund to treat trails integrated with the annual Idaho City Enduro Motorcycle event, and to continue treatments from last year on other trails.  The project would specifically fund treatments in areas that currently have small and manageable infestations.  An estimated 240 miles of trail would be surveyed, monitored or treated with the funding. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Southwest Idaho Resource Advisory Committee and Boise County are partners with this effort.

 

The second application requests $10,700 in funding from the Recreational Trails Program to continue noxious weed treatments on motorized and non-motorized trails in the Idaho City Ranger District and the Sawtooth National Recreation Area.  An estimated 115 miles of trail would be monitored or treated with the funding.  The Sawtooth Society, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Southwest Idaho Resource Advisory Committee and Boise County are partners with this effort.
