A Successful toast to the Spokane River at Water to Wine

With the river roaring on a beautiful night, we were gifted with a great turn-out for Water to Wine. Together, we raised our glasses to the Spokane River and all that means to each of us.

Click here for a few pics of the fun filled event. Thanks to our sponsors, the auction was a lively affair that succeeded in meeting our fundraising goals for river access, restoration and outreach.

One toast was to our most ambitious project yet, river access at Glover Field. Located just below the falls and Huntington Park, this put-in will connect river lovers to the Great Gorge while providing parking and other amenities.

Otto Klein, Senior Vice President of Spokane Indians Baseball, gave a toast to red band trout as the river's signature native fish that's iconic to our past and future. Stay tuned for a big team announcement at the end of June that will bring our commitment to the river, access at Glover and restoration of red band trout to a whole new level.
TJ Meenach river access will be harder to get to this summer

TJ Meenach river access is among the most popular places to get on and off the river below downtown.

Beginning in mid to late July, getting to TJ will be more difficult for about seven weeks. During this time, TJ Meenach Drive will be closed from north of the bridge to NW Boulevard.

The road closure is needed to support several pipe connections that are part of building a 1.4 million gallon underground CSO tank to keep untreated water out of the river. Projects like this are a part of Spokane City's Integrated Clean Water Plan.
