A small patch of nature in downtown Spokane | Arts & Culture
Updated 2:18 p.m. - Sometime on Friday morning, the nature reserve was removed. Where the sod of grass once was, a trail of dirt leads nowhere. Whoever it was - they left behind the cardboard sign.
It's no Turnbull, but it's something that downtown Spokane can enjoy. A small nature reserve has been installed along Lincoln and Riverside.
It's a slab of grass with a simple cardboard sign that says "nature reserve" signifying its importance. There was nobody around to claim the work so the publicly accessible grassy patch of downtown is a mystery.
Since it was placed so conveniently close to the parking meters, now might be a good time to remind interested members of the community that Park(ing) Day is coming up on September 21. Curious minds wonder what the creative people of Spokane will come up with.
