April 22nd – Earth Day Volunteering in the Hangman Valley

April 22, 2023 9:00 am 40

The Inland Northwest Land Conservancy would like to invite you to our Earth Day 2023 volunteer restoration event located near Latah Creek! At the event we will be putting up fencing and moving brush materials to protect local waterways and reduce the threats of wildfire in the Hangman Valley. This is a unique opportunity to see work being done on land protected by a conservation easement here in the Inland Northwest. Work to improve water quality in the area is more important than ever to return salmon to the river and reestablish themselves as stewards of this historically-significant place. There is no better time to spend time on the land and get your hands dirty than Earth Day!

Location: Hanging Tree Historical Monument, HERE. About 30 minutes South of Downtown Spokane.

Parking: Parking at the monument is limited. There is parking in a few turnout areas near the monument. We encourage carpooling if possible.

Date & Time: Saturday, April 22nd, 9am-1pm

What to Bring:

  • Sturdy hiking shoes or boots.
  • Clothing you do not mind getting dirty and weather appropriate, preferably long workpants and long sleeve shirt.

What We Will Provide:

  • PPE
    • Gloves
    • Eye protection
    • Hard Hats
  • Snacks and Refreshments
    • We will have Coffee, Tea, and Water available. Before the event we will have baked goods to share!
