URBAN FORESTS -- Residents interested in Spokane’s High Drive bluff -- the trails and the neighborhoos --  are invited to participate in a discussion of forest health for the area on Wednesday (Aug. 31).

Last spring, community members identified fire risk abatement as a high priority for the Bluff. This workshop will focus on a plan for reducing fire risk on the Bluff and for neighboring homes.

The workshop will be held at the Rocket Market at 726 E 43rd Ave from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. It will include a description of the proposed forest health plan, plus a question and answer session.

Join in the discussion, enjoy a no-host beverage with neighbors, and learn how you can get involved in the project!

For planning purposes, please RSVP to Diana Roberts at WSU Spokane County Extension, phone (509) 477-2167 or E-mail robertsd@wsu.edu.
