Bart Mihailovich, best known for his Spokesman-Review blog Down to Earth, has been selected as the next Spokane Riverkeeper.
Mihailovich will replace Rick Eichstaedt, who became the first Riverkeeper last year. Eichstaedt will remain in the organization to provide legal advice.
"Frankly, we're doing more and more and it was getting to be too much for one person to handle," Eichstaedt said in a statement. "Part of my new job will be dealing with the legal side of it, and part of Bart's will be working with volunteers getting samples and getting the good data to support the legal side of that effort."
Mihailovich will move away from Down to Earth and begin his new job in August.
