 Healthy, Thriving & Restorative
 

Purpose

Little Spokane Watershed projects are volunteer groups of individuals who care about the health and well-being of the Little Spokane Watershed. Each project's purpose is to nurture the stewardship of the Little Spokane Watershed in specific ways. Each group is intended to be a place for sharing success stories and visions and to be a resource center for the watershed.

Each project's goals are to foster attitudes, of the people living in and involved with the Little Spokane Watershed, and work toward the stewardship of the Little Spokane Watershed. This is no small project and not an unworthy goal.

Leadership

Each Little Spokane Watershed project works on various activities nurturing the health of the watershed and allowing the watershed to become more restorative. Each specific project has its own active participants who are responsible for the project. Project ideas and project volunteers are most welcome. lswcp.gif - 102.2 K
