We hope Phase 2 of Washington's Safe Start finds you healthy and well! 

As you venture
Round Up @ Register in support of Friends of the Centennial Trail at the Main Market Co-op in June!
out, please consider grocery shopping at Main Market Co-op.  Shoppers are encouraged to "Round Up @ the Register" in support of your Spokane River Centennial Trail during the month of June.  Their  mission is to provide wholesome, responsibly sourced food to you and your family, safe products for the home, and to be a vibrant part of the downtown area and our larger Spokane Community.  

Main Market Co-op:
44 W Main Ave, Spokane, WA 99201

Friendly Etiquette Reminder
Leashing dogs and cleaning up after them are among the most important Centennial Trail rules.

We saw record Centennial Trail use during the Stay Home Stay Healthy closure of trailheads and restrooms.  The bike/ped counter in Kendall Yards registered nearly a 60% increase in weekday traffic, proving the popularity and importance the Centennial Trail provides to our region.  

Centennial Trail rules, safety and etiquette guidelines are posted on trailhead kiosks, here on our website and printed maps.  Please encourage others who may be new to the Centennial Trail to educate themselves about these important points.  And, please keep safe through social distancing!

Steward & Safeguard

Thanks to those of you who have emailed and called with well wishes and offers to
Jack and Utley Maguire thank Centennial Trail users who steward this special space!
volunteer on the Centennial Trail this spring.  We were disappointed to cancel Unveil the Trail clean up over Earth Day due to COVID-19, but hope to reschedule for September.  You will be the first to know via future e-news blasts, Instagram and Facebook page posts.

While State Parks is unable to place volunteers at this time, you can still help!  Please consider bringing along a trash bag and SAFELY cleaning up garbage or pulling weeds while you enjoy the Centennial Trail.  Individual efforts make a huge difference, especially now while our state, county and local parks departments are stretched thin.

Many thanks,
