They’ll also have some very special rocks that will be painted by the zoo animals (hand and footprints), that Zoo Boise will be hiding throughout the day. The cost to enter the zoo is normal admission prices. The Kindness Rocks Project is the latest trend to sweep the country. You find the perfect (hamburger sized) rock, paint it, add an inspirational message (if you want) and then hide it for someone to find. It’s a way to be creative, come together with friends, inspire others, and participate in a treasure hunt all at the same time. More info here!
