Each walk complements “David Douglas: A Naturalist at Work,” currently on exhibit at Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture. Join other explorers on a tour led by Spokane-based teacher, author and naturalist, Jack Nisbet. Each tour will retrace the travels of Scottish naturalist David Douglas through the Spokane country. The bus will meet at the MAC at 9 a.m. and return at 3 p.m. Pack a lunch for a picnic along the way. All tours include a visit to the Douglas exhibit at the end of the trip. April 20, Swanson Lakes, Twin Lakes & Coffeepot Lake. Search for the early wildflowers and spring birds that captivated Douglas upon his arrival in the scrub steppe in spring 1826. May 4, Little Falls & the Mouth of the Spokane River. Visit sites where Douglas collected iconic Inland Northwest plants and compare your sightings with entries from his field journals. May 18, Colville Valley & Little Pend Oreille Wildlife Refuge. Follow Douglas’ footsteps between Spokane House and Kettle Falls at the peak of wildflower bloom and migrant bird activity.
