One of the greatest benefits of living in the Spokane area is the ability and freedom to leave work early on a hot summer day, grab a couple friends, inflate tubes & take a bouncy float down the scenic Spokane River. It's cool, it's natural, & it's free! Would you like to keep this privilege? Unfortunately some of our fellow floaters (usually younger non-locals) find it necessary to pollute the water & shores with countless glass bottles, beer cans & cigarette butts. So here are 5 unwritten rules for us Inland Surfers: 1) Don't bring glass! 2) Stow your empties in your coolers, 3) Stow your butts in a cargo pocket & 4) Bring extra plastic sacks to clean up trash you happen upon. Another thing: bring a PFD. We're very proud of this River, so treat it with respect and don't ruin our party.
