We preserve and revitalize Inland Northwest forests, water, and
wildlife through advocacy, education, effective action, and community
We collaborate with a broad range of interested parties to seek
smart and mutually respectful solutions to environment and health issues.
We're enriched by the beauty of nature. We're energized by the recreational
opportunities it affords. And we're inspired to preserve its legacy for future
At The Lands Council, that's the work we do, every day!
This Holiday Season, the staff and board of The Lands Council
are especially THANKFUL for...
members, volunteers, and business partners.
Our most recent special event, Reforest Spokane Day, could not have happened
without the contributions of West Corporation. One of the major sponsors of the
event, they also provided the largest number of volunteers and sent in the most
photos for the photo contest. West must be a great place to work! Thanks again
for your generosity.
The winner of our photo contest, long time member, Larry Hampson, also caught
the folks from West
Corporation in action.
Larry wins a bag of The Lands Council's own Beaver Slap Coffee, provided by our
friends at Roast House! See the rest of the
photos on the event page here.
If you would like to give the gift of Beaver Slap this holiday season, contact
Lisa at email@example.com or (509) 209-2851.
The Lands Council Wins Lawsuit to Protect Old Growth Forest in Mt. Spokane State Park
The Lands Council has won a court
action that challenged the re-classification of part of Mt. Spokane State Park
to allow a ski area expansion. We are pleased that the appellate court judges
agreed with our concerns that Washington State Parks Commission failed to
follow the law by allowing a ski area expansion in Mt. Spokane State Park. At stake is the largest old growth stand in
Spokane County, which the Commission had said could be opened up to ski area
