    Jack Nisbet Saltese Uplands Field Trip Coming May 2, 2015
    Mark Your Calendar!
    This moderate walk will take us into the hills above Saltese Lake, where we can identify shrub-steppe wildflowers, peek at Liberty Lake, and ponder some of the last open space and operating farmland in the Spokane Valley.

    Until 1877, this was the home of Chief Saltese, whose story reveals surprising aspects of the relationship between early settlers and the Coeur d'Alene tribe.

    We will meet at the parking area (south of the Barker Road exit off I-90) at 9:00 a.m. and walk until about lunchtime. Bring a picnic, good hiking shoes, water, and sunscreenó there's not much shade.

    Registration forms will be mailed to FLSRV members in March or contact: Harla Jean Biever hjbiever@earthlink.net
