Survey says? Top 10 public opinion poll take aways about the Spokane River


A public opinion poll conducted in May found that 89% of people in Kootenai, Spokane, Stevens and Lincoln counties believe "we owe it to future generations to protect the Spokane River."


With a 4% margin of error, the survey was made possible by a Washington State Department of Ecology Public Participation Grant. Said the Forum's Executive Director, Andy Dunau, "There's a large, complex set of survey data available. For all of us working on various water quality and related issues, it gives really valuable insights to support effective public outreach efforts and engagement."

Spokatopia to provide near perfect, near nature outdoor fun this weekend        


Spokatopia is happening this Saturday, July 11, at Camp Sekani. You can try your hand at numerous outdoor activities with professional outfitters to help you. There will be paddling activities, geocaching, disc golfing, rock climbing, cycling, mountain biking, and trail running. At the Spokane River Forum, of course, we're partial to the stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, rafting, and canoeing activities. When you're ready to retreat from the activities, Spokatopia has that covered as well. They are going to have 40 booths set up, local breweries to check out, slacklining, and outdoor music. General admission is $5 per person, with an additional cost to sign up for outdoor activities/excursions. Hours are from 10 am to 6 pm with music starting at 4 pm. Come July 11 to Spokatopia outdoor adventure festival!
