Hi, we're the  Parks Foundation!

We're the worker bees found in that little office in Idlewild Park across from the California Building. We are grant writers, program developers, student educators, trail guides, AmeriCorps members, and above all, park lovers! Feel free to stop in our office with questions, concerns, ideas, or simply to say hello. You will get many hellos in return!

Spring is Springing in Idlewild Park

As I’m sure you’ve noticed in the last couple of weeks, it has become a bit warmer outside: the grass is a little greener, the flowers are making their grand entrances, and more birds are singing outside your bedroom window at 5 in the morning. Yep, spring is definitely upon us. This became abundantly apparent as the TMPF team took a lil’ walk through Idlewild Park earlier this week. We spotted a few common goldeneye on the river, as well as some common mergansers, and a few more Canada geese than usual. We spotted some wild violets blossoming along the path. We were lucky enough to see the water that has graced the Truckee River this year, too. We even caught the rattle of a belted kingfish
