Volunteering with the Lands Council you get a rewarding experience that helps revitalize and protect the Inland Northwest’s forests, water, and wildlife. Here’s what volunteers help with:
Volunteers help us maintain and plant thousands of trees every year to regrow forests, shade and clean water, and provide habitat for a wide array of wildlife. Join our community tree planting events Earth Day (April) and Reforest Spokane Day (October)!
Our volunteers help us Wander Wild in floating the Spokane River, hiking Dishman Hills, and snowshoeing on Mt. Spokane. These activities get members from the community out in nature and often get to meet other conservation partners!
We hand out hundreds of trees in our Free Tree Giveaway to increase urban canopy and encourage neighbors to promote green space neighborhoods.
We host numerous open houses and events throughout the year. Stop by and meet us to learn about our programs!
We annually organize the Spokane River Clean-Up. This event is held annually in September. Each year, our volunteers remove over 4 tons of trash and recyclables from the Spokane River!
We also host the best rooftop party in Spokane: BREWFTOP! We rally folks for an amazing party on a local rooftop with awesome beer, food, and music.
Each year, we host Reforest Spokane Day. In just three hours, our volunteers plant thousands of trees and establish a sense of community pride and stewardship.
We work to educate our community by being at various community events (street fairs, rallies, college campuses) about our forests, water, and wildlife.
