“Silent Disco River Cleanup” Event along Mission Park


In partnership with Spokane Riverkeeper, the Gonzaga University Office of Sustainability is hosting a cleanup of the Spokane River along Mission Park combined with the groovy tunes of a silent disco. On Friday, May 10 from 2 – 5 p.m., join the Spokane community to enjoy local music and have a positive impact on a neighborhood landmark.

Spokane Riverkeeper will provide garbage pickers, gloves and bags for the cleanup, and the Office of Sustainability will have wireless headphones for you get in on the disco action. Great beats from three local artists: DJ Unifest, Lady Llamanade and Darrien Mack will be featured. Researchers from Gonzaga's Biology Department will also be there with an interactive demonstration of how plastics break down and stay in our water, even when you can't see them.

Councilwoman Kate Burke, who is supporting the event, says, “A clean river? Dancing? What’s not to love? I am happy to participate in unique events like this that benefit our river and promote a strong community.”
