Volunteers needed for September projects on local trails

TRAILS — Several local groups are joining the Washington Trails Association to upgrade Spokane-area trails this month. Most of the work parties are on weekends, but there's a project set for Thursday at Mount Spokane.

Read on to for details about all the September projects, including a major effort at the Iller Creek Conservation Area in Spokane Valley. 

Washington Trails Association, September work parties in the Spokane area, organized by Jane Baker.

Sign up here.

Schedule:

Thursday, Sept. 15: Mt. Spokane State Park  Washington State Parks

Mount Spokane has many great hiking, biking, and equestrian trails - day hikes that easily accommodate all interests and abilities. The trails are used year-round, and because of this several of the trails need to be heavily maintained and improved to withstand the continual foot/tire/hoof traffic. This is a new project for WTA, and we hope you will join us as we start to help the Park on their endeavor to upgrade these trails.
