The Lands Council needs volunteers to water trees along Hangman Creek, Little Spokane and the Spokane River. The trees, which were planted, require extra water during the summer’s hottest months, according to the Lands Council. There are numerous volunteer opportunities throughout August.

The trees root systems do not yet reach to the water table thus requiring human watering.

For more information and to sign up email Outreach Coordinator Jeff Johnson: jjohnson@landscouncil.org.
