Fall Community Planting Event

10/15/2016Tree Planting 150x118

Come celebrate National Wildlife Refuge Week by planting a tree to help offset your carbon footprint.  Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge, Spokane Audubon Society and Friends of Turnbull will host a community work party on Saturday, October 15, 2016.   

Numerous partners and individuals participate in our semiannual community planting events held during the spring and fall. This ongoing community effort restores native riparian habitat to benefit birds and other wildlife species. We have hundreds of native saplings to plant. We will also erect fencing at the project site to protect the trees from deer, elk, and moose browsing.  Everyone is welcome to participate!
