Spokane River Water Trail Web Site
Want to get on the river and enjoy it safely? Not sure where to go or what to do? Want to know about classes, clubs, guides and more? Need directions? The Spokane River Water Trail web site provides this and more. Said one long time outfitter in Spokane, “For recreators, this is the definitive Spokane River web site.”
Cleanup, Restoration and Water Trail Access
Since beginning this initiative in 2009, over 30 stakeholders have stepped forward to help plan and implement actions. There is now new and/or restored water trail access at Mirabeau, Barker Road, Upriver Dam, McKinstry at Gonzaga, and Long Lake Dam. Permitting has started for new access at Trailer Park Wave in Idaho, State Line, and Nine Mile Dam. Plans for additional access points are being developed for Islands Trailhead and Division Street Bridge. Each fall, we help organize the Upriver Scrub clean-up.
Meet Me at the River
We’ve led the way in helping people discover all or part of the Spokane River. Over 700 participants and 1,200 passenger trips later, a great time is had by all with eco-tours, expert guides, and electronic passports to track progress.
Shop Smart! Look for the EnviroStars logo. This unique partnership between the Forum and seven state and local agencies helps small businesses keep hazardous and other waste out of the Spokane River and aquifer. Over 70 small businesses have gone through certified inspections and joined the program.
Our conference draws more than 250 people interested in the latest Spokane River water quality, water resources, and other restoration and protection projects. Additional workshops and activities keep folks connected.
Print and Web Information
We provide plain talk information on technical and sometimes difficult to understand issues that affect the river. In 2012, we worked with partners to release Public Guide “Understanding Stormwater Permitting in the City of Spokane.”
