About

Over the past five years, The Lands Council and hundreds of volunteers have gathered together for a very special day: Reforest Spokane Day! On October 15 from 10am - 1pm, join hundreds of volunteers to plant trees near the Spokane River for this huge event! Every year, thousands of trees are planted with the help of outstanding volunteers and a community that works together to preserve and protect the city of Spokane. This is the underlying mission of the annual Reforest Spokane Day: to continue to plant trees as a community until future generations in the beautiful Inland Northwest are surrounded by one million trees that symbolize community, stewardship, and dedication. The trees will be planted on the south side of the Sandifur Bridge in the west central district of the centennial trail. There is neighborhood parking near by at Bridge and Summit St. Sign in will begin at 9am. There will be morning snacks and coffee. Volunteers are asked to bring their own shovel, work gloves, and water bottle. Please wear sturdy shoes and weather appropriate work clothing. The benefits of planting these trees include:

  • Providing much-needed shade, especially in urban areas;
  • Reducing traffic noise;
  • Stormwater absorption resulting in cleaner watersheds;
  • Creating habitat for wildlife species;
  • And an increasing visual presence of our wonderful city.
