It's River Rafting Time


"Leave boring behind," says David Lawrence with Pangaea River Rafting. Not a problem right now for outdoor enthusiasts in Spokane. Right outside our back door the Spokane River awaits with spring time rafting adventure.


Putting in just below downtown, introductory riffles and rapids greet you as you travel through the iconic Great Gorge. Then it's on to Class III - IV rapids as you pass through the Bowl and Pitcher and Devil's Toe Nail. This adventure, however, is best done with professional guides like Pangaea and ROW Adventures. Read More 

Forum President hooks up Visit Spokane with Riverkeeper and local cities to beautify Spokane River  


The Spokane River Forum's President, Jeanna Hofmeister, celebrated Arbor Day and kicked off the Mayor's "Spokane Gives" campaign along with twenty two of her Visit Spokane co-workers. Coordinated by Spokane Riverkeeper, Jerry White as part of the city's urban forestry program, volunteers planted nearly 500 Ponderosa Pine seedlings along the river banks in People's Park.


In the afternoon, Visit Spokane's team headed to the Spokane Valley where the crew cleaned up mile 10-11 in Mirabeau Point Park on their adopted mile of the Centennial Trail. This included clean-up of trash and litter all the way down to the river's banks and around our beautiful put-in at Mirabeau.
