VOLUNTEERING OUTDOORS -- Helpers are needed for two reconstruction projects on popular trails near Spokane this month.
The Washington Trails Association is coordinating the work as follows:
Mount Spokane, Sept. 1 and 15 – the last of several Thursday work parties on re-routes of trails popular with hikers and equestrians.
Iller Creek, Sept. 17, 18, 24, 25 and Oct. 15-16 – Rerouting 1,000 feet of trail around a nasty steep rutted section in the prized Conservation Futures area on the east side of Tower Mountain.
The work qualifies toward credit for free Discover Passes, said local WTA trail work crew leader Jane Baker.
