April 5th – Pullin’ Mullein at Waikiki Springs

April 5, 2023 9:00 am 20

INLC’s Waikiki Spring Nature Preserve property lies along the northern bank of the Little Spokane River. The diversity of this property is unmatched and contains abundant wildlife habitat and sustainable recreation opportunity. The Conservancy strives to not only protect lands like these, but also to enhance the habitats and forest health of the landscape and learn more about the land to inform our land protection efforts.

One of the important ways we can take care of our lands is to promote native species and remove invasive ones. This work party will focus on the removal of non-native, invasive species that threaten the habitats that are so important for wildlife and healthy ecosystem function.

We will have snacks and coffee before the event starts from 8:40am- 9:00am
