PESC Update – June 12

Idler’s Rest Cleanup and Free Lunch Saturday June 14 – RSVP requested:

The Palouse Land Trust and Palouse Environmental Sustainability Coalition are hosting the second annual trail clean up at Idler’s Rest Nature Preserve from 9am – 12 noon on June 14th.  This lovely cedar grove is enjoyed by many area residents.  It is owned and managed by the Palouse Land Trust, which is dependent on donations from the community to maintain the Preserve, so this is a wonderful opportunity to show how much we care about these special places.    Carpoolers can meet at 8:30 at the Unitarian Church (420 E. 2nd St., Moscow). As a thank you for all your hard work a delicious Co-op lunch will be served around 11:30.  Trish Heeken from theIdaho and Latah County Conservation Departments will be joining us to identify both the invasives and the native good guys.  Last year she found a rare plant she had never seen before in this area.  For directions or questions, email Amy Trujillo at  An RSVP is appreciated so we can make sure to have enough food.
