Nov. 5th – Native Species Planting at Feryn Conservation Area

November 5, 2022 10:00 am 40

Spokane County Parks and Recreation, in partnership with Inland Northwest Land Conservancy, will be planting 200 native plants along the southern bank of Deadman Creek to improve water quality, enhance habitat, provide aesthetic structure, and reduce weed populations in the area! We need volunteers to help us get this important work done!

Feryn Conservation Area is a beautiful place, full of deer, moose, coyotes, and lots of birds! Not to mention the beautiful views of Mt. Spokane and the Peone Prairie! This property is where Deadman Creek and Peone Creek converge, creating a lush wetland that local wildlife relies on, and where water is slowly cleansed before flowing downstream to the Little Spokane.
