UP FOR A GOOD STORY? OR SIX? 
We have asked 7 of Spokane's smartest, most inspiring people, with different backgrounds and overlapping passions, to share insights and stories that connect us all to our neighborhood open space: the High Drive Bluff Park. But here is the catch:   They each get the mike for only 10 minutes or less. 

 

WHO'S UP?


The Friends of the Bluff Guy: Pat Keegan, President of Friends of the Bluff

What we're up to at Friends of the Bluff and why it matters to you.

 

The Trailbuilder: Nate Hutchens, President of Evergreen East Mountain Bike Alliance

Life is better on singletrack and the Bluff has 22 miles of it + how Evergreen East strives for sustainable trail nirvana in Eastern Washington.

 

The Parks Guy: Leroy Eadie, Spokane Parks and Recreation Director

What does Spokane have in the works for the Bluff and its other open-space parks?

 

The Fire Specialist:  Guy Gifford, Department of Natural Resources Firewise Coordinator

Wildfire on the Bluff: the threat and what we're doing about it.

 

The Naturalist: Jack Nisbet, historian, author, and teacher  

The (really) early days of Hangman Creek: a quick look at its travelers and fisheries.

 

The Runners: Gunhild Swanson and Chris Morlan, mother/son duo of accomplished runners. Shea's a 72-year-old ultrarunner. He is a Brooks sponsored ambassador and the coach of the Spokane Distance Project. 

The Bluff trails: a training ground for one fast family's running passion.

 

Come early, grab a beer, and settle in for an hour of Talks. There will be plenty of time for socializing, too.


THIS IS OUR NEIGHBORHOOD. THIS IS OUR NATURE. THESE ARE OUR TRAILS.
