Waikiki Springs Cleanup a Success

July 30, 2019

On Saturday July 20 thirty volunteers attended a three-hour clean-up of the lands known as Waikiki Springs, managed and owned by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

This area in North Spokane near Bozarth Mansion is one of Inland Northwest Land Conservancy’s current conservation projects. Together with REI Spokane, WDFW, Wander Spokane, and the Fairwood Farmers Market INLC was able to organize last Saturday’s clean-up.

Many who attended are neighbors who live within a mile or two of Waikiki Springs and recreate there on a regular basis. Staff from WDFW were on hand to help lead the project and haul away the over 200 pounds of trash removed from the property.

It was great to see volunteers of all ages participating. Every volunteer walked away with an REI stewardship t-shirt as a memento of the event.
