Ecology Department grants $15,000 for creek cleanup at Hangman Valley Golf Course, April 8, 2019

The Washington Department of Ecology has awarded $15,000 to Spokane County’s parks department to plant native vegetation along Hangman Creek at the Hangman Valley Golf Course.

The plants’ roots will help stabilize the banks of the creek, also known as Latah Creek, to prevent erosion that muddies the water, promotes algae growth and diminishes levels of dissolved oxygen, which native trout need to survive.
