Get planting this Earth Day weekend with the Lands Council

SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. — Get your hands dirty to help planet Earth by planting trees this weekend.

The Lands Council has some opportunities for you to plant this Friday and Saturday.


The Lands Council’s SpoCanopy program is partnering again with the City of Spokane Urban Forestry and Park Operations teams to mitigate damage from the 2021 windstorm in Spokane County.

The park system lost approximately 200 trees due to the storm.

This tree planting is happening at Comstock Park on Friday, April 22 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

There’s also a tree planting event happening Saturday, April 23 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The Lands Council is hosting a fun, family-friendly tree planting where trees will be provided and you can bring your own tools if you have them.

You will plant trees in small groups and shifts to make a big difference while staying safe.

It is a large site with plenty of parking and room to spread out.

Participants will meet at 17530 S Short Rd in Cheney.


Want to plant trees in your own neighborhood? There’s a tree giveaway happening this Saturday too.

In an effort to increase our urban canopy, the Lands Council needs your help planting trees at home.

Trees will be free to Spokane residents.

Just stop by On Track Academy at 4091 N Regal St between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. on Saturday, April 23.
