REI continues to support River Forum with new grant

In our efforts to connect people to the river, the River Forum has found a kindred spirit in REI. Said Carol Christensen, REI's community outreach coordinator, "We believe that stewardship and recreation do go hand in hand. People that are really involved in outdoor recreation recognize that without stewarding an area it won't be there anymore."


The River Forum is pleased to announce receiving a grant from REI. The grant will support volunteer restoration efforts at Stateline and Barker Road and the annual Upriver Scrub Cleanup. The grant also supports the Spokane Water Trail website, which is now visited by thousands of people.

As a prominent member of Automotive Service Association (ASA) Northwest, Cushman helped instill practices which are now common such as recycling oil and antifreeze.
