TLC needs to be a daily effort at Dishman Hills

TRAILS -- Less than a week after 330 people volunteered to clean up the Dishman Hills Natural Area in Spokane Valley, the new garbage carnage already has begun.

Don't let litter critters take our favorite places down.

Fight back by devoting just a few minutes of every hike to the cause!

Take a small garbage bag with you on every hike, regardless of where you go. A little pick up here and there can make a big difference. A group can have a great positive impact in very little time, with very little effort.

As one friend put it, "Stewardship is forever."
