Take a journey along Hangman Creek, also known as Latah Creek. Although few are really familiar with Hangman Creek, the water quality and land use challenges it faces are critically important to the future of our communities.
Enabling native trout to once again swim and spawn in Hangman’s waters, supporting the productivity of farms, and stabilizing sewer rates are all part of the story. Success will require solutions, cooperation and smart investments from many sources.
Join Bert Caldwell, retired Spokesman review editor and writer, to learn about this 60 mile gem in Spokane’s backyard. Beginning in the mountains of Idaho, it crosses the Coeur d’Alene Reservation and eventually joins with the Spokane River just below downtown Spokane. Along the way, it flows through Palouse farms and fields, small towns, along highways, pastures and 2 golf courses.
