About

Help maintain restoration sites in Spokane and contribute to habitat restoration and water clean up! The Lands Council needs capable volunteers to carry buckets of water from a near by stream to each tree. We have several restoration sites planted to help keep the Spokane River clean of contaminants that hurt our drinking water and habitat improvements. With your help, the trees can thrive and continue this restoration work for years to come.

Our maintenance crews go out EVERY week. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Katie at (509) 999-3313 or volunteer.landscouncil@gmail.com. One of the maintenance coordinators will meet at The Lands Council office (25 West Main) and carpool or caravan out to the site.

This maintenance job requires the ability to carry heavy buckets of water, in sometimes difficult terrain. Those with limited mobility or injuries will be challenged, as well as, younger children.

Please prepare for weather conditions, sun exposure, bees, ticks and other potential bug encounters, and shrubs/thorns. Please wear sturdy shoes and pants to protect from itching, scratching, bites, etc.

Can't wait to hear from you!
