Summer is fast approaching and the cool, flowing waters of our sparkling gem, the Spokane River, beckon us to its banks each day the sun shines bright and warm. Before anyone gets too antsy to splash and paddle its waters, get the latest update on the river’s current state from Spokane Riverkeeper Jerry White, who took over as local water protector just shy of a year ago. Hosted by REI, White talks about how all of us can help protect the Spokane River from local sources of pollution — including garbage and plastics that litter its banks due to human carelessness.
