HIKING – The 51st annual Buttercup Hike, set for Saturday, April 8, at the Dishman Hills, has evolved into two hikes, one beginning at 9 a.m. and the second at 1 p.m. from Camp Caro.

The hikes will be led by Dishman Hills Conservancy member Art Zack, who has expertise in ecology and the hills. While looking for the season’s first blooms of the season, he’ll also share the history and importance of the open spaces the conservancy is preserving in Spokane Valley.

The guided hikes are free, but hikers are asked be prepared for rain showers and to register on the conservancy’s website, dishmanhills.org.

The group’s annual auction and dinner is April 15.
