Meet at the Bill Chipman Palouse Trail on May 11th at 10:00 am.

Let’s celebrate the rivers of the Palouse! The Rivers, Watersheds, and Communities Club at WSU, in collaboration with the Water Research Center, is hosting our first Walking Rivers event. A day #WalkingRivers is a global event to recognize and celebrate local rivers and is organized by the Centro Ibérico de Restauración Fluvial, Spain. Join us in our walk along Paradise Creek to learn more about Palouse rivers, water quality, and restoration.

All ages are welcome and the Palouse Trail is accessible for strollers and wheelchairs. The goal is to walk 10,000 steps (about 4 miles). You can join for as much or as little of the trip as you’d like.

Optional: Wear blue to identify with the global Walking Rivers community!

Parking: Limited parking is available in the Mint Condition/Quality Inn lot next to the trailhead, and Quality Inn has agreed to allow overflow parking if the designated trailhead parking spaces are full. More parking is available on Latah Street.

Registration: Please register for the event here.
