TRAILS -- Spokane Parks and Recreation Department is planning two volunteer trail building days at Wyakin Park. This undeveloped park is in the northwest part of Spokane at the corner of Assembly and Francis.
"This area is about 20 acres and will make a great small trail area that is close to Riverside State Park, and the Merkel Trail system," said Mike Aho, the city's outdoor program director. "It makes a great hiking, trail running, dog walking and Mountain Biking park for the northwest residents."
"To make this happen we are relying on volunteer labor to help create another close to home nature area. Your help continues to make Spokane a great place to live and recreate by helping out."
The work days are:
- Friday (Nov. 11-Veterans Day), noon-3 p.m.
- Saturday (Nov. 12), 9 a.m.-noon.
Sign up: Contact volunteer coordinator Ted Moon at email@example.com or 991-5166
Bring Trail tools (shovels, racks, litter bag, loppers), Gloves, Sturdy Shoes, water bottle and dress for weather.
Meet at the park just North of Francis Avenue on Assembly Street.
