Water Trail elves working past Xmas

Thank you to Lindsay Chutas with the Spokane Conservation District and Todd Nelson with Timberlake Industries for working past Xmas on the Aubrey White water trail access. Adjacent to the city's wastewater treatment plant, this long-awaited restoration project has arrived for the holidays. After the first week of January, it'll be ready for use. This spring the Forum will be working with SCD, the Northwest Whitewater Association (NWA), and the City of Spokane on some finishing touches and signage.

Said Paul Delaney with NWA, "We're not waiting for spring to use it. You can expect to see us out there in January. It's the cool thing to do."

Web launch just in time for the new year
