Stay warm with your Conservancy this winter!

January 19, 2024

Even with winter in full force, Inland Northwest Land Conservancy wants to get you outside. This season you can stay warm by staying active or cozying up by the fire 🙂

Saturday, February 3rd: Rimrock Hike

Join volunteer hike docent, Bob Ganahl, and local author and historian, Jack Nisbet, for a hike around Palisades Park. Whether it’s your first time or you’re a seasoned visitor, come and learn something new about this gem of a city park.

Saturday, February 3rd: Slash Pile Burning

Come warm up with us at Waikiki Springs Nature Preserve! To reduce fuel load at the preserve, we will burn piles of brush collected by volunteers over the past year. We will host this event from 9:00 am to 3:00pm. We invite you to come during any point and stay as long as you’d like. Snacks and warm beverages will be provided!

Sunday, February 4th: Waikiki Springs Hike

Stay active this winter with volunteer hike docent, Alana Livingston! While this 3-4 mile hike is done at a leisurely pace, there are some good inclines to climb. Come connect with nature and other community members while experiencing our favorite preserve through all seasons.

Saturday, February 17th: Antoine Peak Hike

Join volunteer hike docent, Rick Hosmer, on this loop hike that provides a great introduction to the 1,300 acres of the Antoine Peak Conservation Area. On the hike, you’ll chat about the Conservancy’s involvement in protecting this land, regional wildlife, ice age floods, the Spokane-Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer, Antoine Plante (a very interesting guy!), and Native cultural history of the area. There is a lot of history to be seen from here!
