One last tree planting effort at Hangman Creek before winter


Early morning fog fills the Hangman Valley and Latah Creek areas as brightly colored train cars traverse the bridge just west of downtown Spokane on Friday.  Forecasts for Sunday and Monday call for storms that could bring snow to lower elevations.

CONSERVATION -- The InlandNorthwest Land Trust is calling for volunteers ond FRIDAY to “Beat the Frost” with a tree planting effort to help restore a riparian area along Hangman Creek just south of Spokane.

The group hopes to get 10-15 volunteers from noon to 3 p.m. Friday to help plant 200 trees at either the Bryant/Sayre property or the neighboring Hein property while the weather permits.

The trees will help stabilize the stream bank, decrease erosion and future solar radiation, and increase wildlife habitat along Hangman Creek.

What you will need: gloves, water, snacks (if you wish), and a shovel.

Contact: Brooke Nicholson, email outreach@inlandnwlandtrust.org or

call (509) 328-2939 to sign up and receive directions.
