Up for a good story? Or six?
This is BLUFF Talks. We’ve summoned seven of Spokane’s smartest, most inspiring people to share insights and stories relevant to our neighborhood open space: the High Drive Bluff Park. Each presenter will connect us to our South-city natural gem, in his own words and her own way, in 10 minutes or less (while you drink beer).
> The Friends of the Bluff Guy: Pat Keegan, President of Friends of the Bluff
What we’re up to at Friends of the Bluff and why it matters to you.
> The Trailbuilder: Nate Hutchens, President of Evergreen East Mountain Bike Alliance
Life is better on singletrack and the Bluff has 22 miles of it. How Evergreen East strives for trail nirvana in Eastern Washington.
> The Parks Guy: Leroy Eadie, Spokane Parks and Recreation Director
What does Spokane have in the works for the Bluff and its other open-space parks?
> The Fire Specialist: Guy Gifford, Department of Natural Resources Firewise Coordinator
Wildfire on the Bluff: the threat and what we’re doing about it.
> The Naturalist: Jack Nisbet, historian, author, and teacher
The (really) early days of Hangman Creek: a quick look at its travelers and fisheries.
> The Runners: Gunhild Swanson and Chris Morlan, mother/son duo of accomplished runners. She’s a 72-year-old ultrarunner. He’s a former Olympian and the coach of the Spokane Distance Project.
The Bluff trails: a training ground for one fast family’s running passion.
