April 28 – May 1: City Nature Challenge

The Inland Northwest Land Conservancy is joining a worldwide effort to collect species data for the plants and wildlife that live on this Earth with us!

Celebrate nature with friends and family on the banks of the Little Spokane River on Saturday, May 13, 8:15 pm. with this free hike and bike-in silent movie.

Saturday, May 20: Bee & Pollinator Hotel Installation

Bee hotels and other pollinator structures provide nesting space for solitary bees, wasps, moths, and butterflies. They’re easy to build and stock with nesting material for a variety of species, but we need extra hands to get all the materials to the right place. Register to help us install these important structures at Waikiki Springs!
