An outdoor event series, put on pause by COVID-19, has restarted this summer.

Wednesday in the Woods is put on by the Riverside State Parks Foundation, REI and Washington State Parks.

Below is a list of the upcoming events:

  • Wednesday, “Moose, Cougars, and Bears, Oh My!” Join the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and Riverside State Park rangers to find out how to deal with animal encounters.
  • Aug. 11, Flora and Fauna in Spokane
