About

The Lands Council is working to restore riparian habitat in the Spokane watershed. We plant trees near streams to act as a buffer and filter for contaminants and sediment. The trees help to cool the stream water, improving fish survival and improve habitat for wildlife. The tree roots take time to establish and thrive so they need frequent watering during the hotter months.

Our maintenance crews go out EVERY week to water the trees. We generally carry two 5 gallon buckets between stream and tree in the form of a relay system. The more hands the better. We need hard working individuals who can carry weight and walk in difficult terrain. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Katie at (509)2092-852 or kwiseman@landscouncil.org.

This maintenance job can be taxing on the body. Proper clothing and footware is really important. 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!
