Foundation for Ada/Canyon Trail Systems

Our History

Boise Greenbelt History

Let’s begin with a little bit of history. Boise River Trail Foundation became F.A.C.T.S. through restated Articles of Incorporation in 1998. Prior Bylaws dated September 1, 1987 of the Boise River Trail Foundation remain in effect. In order to meld the efforts of both Ada and Canyon Counties a logo was chosen for the letterhead that shows two trees side-by-side with a conceptual “river” as the common current or theme.

F.A.C.T.S. is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization, contributions to which by organizations, individuals and foundations are tax-deductible.


Our Meetings

F.A.C.T.S. meetings are open to the public but there is an email list that goes out in preparation for meetings that include representatives of govermental agencies, not-for-profit organizations and volunteers. In a sense, F.A.C.T.S. is an alliance to support and comment upon bicycle/pedestrian projects and agendas that reflect the spirit of co-operation among the various entities. At the same time, following the influence of our predecessor organization Boise River Trail Foundation formed in 1987, F.A.C.T.S. continues to be involved with closing the gap on the Greenbelt along the Boise River; it received a Recreational Trails Program (R.T.P.) grant for $103,000 in 2010 that will help build a natural standard size path on a 3.2 mile section on the south side/south channel as easements are obtained from adjacent land owners. The ultimate goal is being able to ride the 63 miles from Lucky Peak Dam to where the Boise River meets the Snake River.
