Here is what the Trust is planning in Spokane:
“Rich in native cultures and a leader in sustainability, Spokane is Eastern Washington’s jewel that showcases urban, suburban, and rural preservation challenges and solutions in one city.  Come to Spokane to bridge chasms, break tradition, and explore what going beyond boundaries can do to instill a preservation ethic in Americans of all ages, backgrounds and outlooks.”
