"Wow, this is really steep," thought Craig Andersen, a Project Manager and landscape architect with AHBL, our design consultant for the project. AHBL provides professional consulting services in civil engineering, landscape architecture, land planning, land surveying and structural engineering with offices in Spokane, the Tri-Cities, Tacoma, and Seattle.

River Takes Center Stage at Convention Center Grand Opening

The newly expanded convention center does a masterful job of connecting people

to what was there all along: the Spokane River.  


Indeed, as the city prospers it continues to come full circle to the river that flows through it. Three new public art pieces at the convention center all pay homage to the river-highlighting prolific trout runs, abundant wildlife and natural beauty.

"Spokane River Impressions" viewing March 6th

Artful impressions of the Spokane River. This Friday, presented by our friend and artist Charley Gurche. Said Charley "I spent some time photographing the Spokane River for the Spokane Riverkeeper program. I made many traditional landscape images, but some of the most striking compositions I observed came from the simple patterns and designs created by the river's surface."
