We protect land that feeds water into our aquifer, shorelines of the Coeur d’Alene River, Lake Pend Oreille, Lake Spokane, and the Little Spokane River. We manage preserve areas on Reardan Lake, in Mead, and between Palisades Park and Riverside State Park. Engaging the community with the lands we protect and care for allows us to protect even more land, helping to ensure a better future for our community–humans and native plants and animals. Be part of protecting clean air, clean water, wildlife habitat, and special places for people to enjoy.

Trail Work Parties

The Conservancy needs your help building and maintaining accessible trails on our preserves. Trail work is a rewarding way to engage with nature and contribute to local land and recreation. Our expert staff will educate you on trail building tasks and techniques. Volunteers of all skill levels are welcome and tools are provided. All you need to bring is a lunch, a bottle of water, and your enthusiasm for leaving your mark on lasting trails.

Events

Guided Hikes

The Conservancy connects people to nature by leading guided outings to the lands that we help protect. This includes many special places throughout the Inland Northwest.  These fun and educational outings are offered to give members and those just learning about our mission an opportunity to see our work firsthand. Some hikes include authors, scientists, and professors who provide an even richer and more memorable experience.

Field Fridays

Want to spend some time with the Stewardship Crew and learn a bit more about the lands Inland Northwest Land Conservancy has protected? The first Friday of each month will be dedicated to exploring important conservation lands, completing our annual monitoring of the property, and doing a restoration project. As we walk and work, we’ll learn about subjects like noxious weeds, local geology, wildlife biology, aquatic ecology, local history, and more!

Land Steward Program

The Conservation Community (that’s you!) has helped Inland Northwest Land Conservancy to conserve over 20,000 acres of the Inland Northwest to protect existing habitat from development! One of the ways you can help enhance these protected lands is by becoming a Volunteer Land Steward. Stewards will design and complete restoration projects, educate public land users, and note trends on the land.
