City Nature Challenge

Join Inland Northwest Land Conservancy and our nature-loving community in gathering information about the land and species we all care about! Understanding the species that we share this earth with is critical to protecting important habitats and migration corridors, restoring habitat, and developing strong trail and forest management plans. We’ll spend time together making observations of the species of Spokane County from April 26th to 29th, and submit that data to the good folks at City Nature Challenge, who not only track and compare our observations, but observations from across the world!

Philosophical Hiking with Eastern Washington University Students

This Spring, the Conservancy’s Volunteer Hike Docents will be joined by Eastern Washington University students to bring a philosophical lens to our hikes. As part of earning their community engagement credit for their course, these students will lead a guided discussion on a reading relevant to the land you are hiking on. We hope these discussions will encourage deeper engagement with the land you’re exploring!
