Spokane River Cleanup Continues Tradition of Success 




A little rain did nothing to dampen the spirits of 2016 Spokane River cleanup volunteers. Crews were out in force picking up trash in Spokane Valley, the University District, the Downtown River Gorge area, High Bridge Park, People's Park and Hangman Creek. Here's the box score:

Volunteers: 692
Trash tonnage: 3.19 tons
Recyclables: 976 lbs

This annual event is put on by a coalition of groups. Special kudos to the Lands Council for providing staff to coordinate and herd us into action. The Forum was pleased to again support the web site and coordinate Spokane Valley activities. This year's sponsors and partners included:

Give them a shout out of thanks when you get a chance.
