November Events Round Up

October 20, 2023

With each day offering less day light, this time of year can be especially hard on peoples’ mental health.

One way to ease the seasonal blues is to get outside and explore the Inland Northwest with likeminded folk. Not sure where to start? Your Conservancy is here to help!

Wednesday, October 25th: Wet is Wild – Waterbirds of Saltese Flats Wetlands

Presentation by Lisa Langelier

Water is a magnet for waterbirds including shorebirds, wading birds, waterfowl, and several species that hang around wetland edges. Learn more about the diverse waterbirds that flock to the restored wetlands at Saltese Flats.

Presenter, Lisa Langelier, retired from the US Fish and Wildlife Service in December 2013 after 25 years working on national wildlife refuges in Colorado and the Inland Northwest.

Wednesday, November 1st: Waikiki Wednesday

We will be hosting Bi-Weekly Waikiki Wednesdays at our Waikiki Springs Nature Preserve, from 9:00am-2:00pm. We will be performing various stewardship tasks like invasive species removal, trail maintenance, planting, and everything else in between!

Sunday, November 5th: Slavin Conservation Area Hike with Andi Chatburn

Starting at 9am, this 3.2 mile hike and will take approximately 2.5-3 hours to complete. Rated as an easy hike with relatively little elevation change along restored wetland and through pine forest. This is a good hike for those who like to mindfully walk with the more than human world.

Tuesday, November 14th: Mushroom Walk at Liberty Lake

Volunteer hike docent, Barb Morkill, will lead a mushroom walk with expert mycologist Suzanne Schwab starting at 10am. Predicting the best time to go mushrooming can be difficult as it greatly depends on recent rains. Either way, plan on a lovely autumn walk searching for mushrooms!

Sunday, November 19th: Liberty Lake Hike with avid birder, Brenda Day

Starting at 10am this easy/moderate 4.5 mile hike will take between 3-3.5 hours to complete. With an avid birder like Brenda you are likely to learn a thing or two about what you see flying over head. Bring binoculars if you have them!
