Marshall Community Coalition

Marshall Community Coalition Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 1991 to address our surface and groundwater issues in the Marshall Creek Watershed through information and education with community involvement and agency support.

Projects currently underway are Marshall Creek restoration, Queen Lucas Lake, Marshall Landfill, Spokane to Fish Lake Trail, Pasco to Fish Lake Trail, and our newest project, Fish Lake Park. These long-term 10-20 year projects involve the community, up to 7 schools a year and 11 agencies all working cooperatively to enhance and protect out watershed.

These projects consist of planting wildlife habitat, streambank stabilization, water quality studies, stream surveys, and historical land use studies, along with trail clean-ups and plantings involving students and community members.
