In a Nutshell

Donations help fund water-quality tests that evaluate Hangman Creek and the Spokane River to determine a course for rehabilitative action

100% of donations go directly to Spokane Riverkeeper. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide full name at checkout. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: Deterioration of Hangman Creek

Though the community has worked to restore the Spokane River, pollution still enters the river from its tributaries. Unchecked development and agriculture have degraded the water quality at Hangman Creek to the point where it threatens the overall health of the river. However, the community still has the power to rehabilitate the shoreline by rebuilding wetlands and preventing further pollution.

The Campaign: Conducting Water-Quality Tests

If this Grassroots campaign raises $480, then Spokane Riverkeeper can perform 60 water-quality tests to gauge the health of Hangman Creek and the Spokane River. Each additional $8 raised will fund another water-quality test.

Volunteers will conduct water-quality checks on the Spokane River and its tributary Hangman Creek. They will test for phosphates, nitrates, dissolved oxygen, pH, temperature and turbidity, gathering baseline data to help determine how and where to implement restoration procedures.

Spokane Riverkeeper

Spokane Riverkeeper and the region’s designated riverkeeper, Bart Mihailovich, work to protect and preserve the waters of the Spokane River. The organization educates the public on how to prevent damage to the local ecosystem and actively works to rehabilitate areas of the watershed that have deteriorated. Along with volunteers and interns, Bart conducts field research on the status of the water and plant life and organizes projects to remove pollution and rebuild the local habitat.
