City Nature Challenge: Palouse Region is coming up

City Nature Challenge: Palouse Region

(From the Palouscd.org site)

The City Nature Challenge (CNC) is a bio-blitz competition that brings together cities from all over the world to observe wildlife and log those observations on the iNaturalist app. Observations of wild flora and fauna help scientists understand species distributions and further local and global biodiversity goals.

The dates for the 2022 competition are April 29th – May 2nd. Any observations recorded through iNaturalist in Whitman or Latah Counties during this time will count toward the Palouse Region CNC.

You do not need to be an expert to participate in the CNC! All you need is an interest in local wildlife, access to wild (not captive or cultivated) organisms, and an iNaturalist account.

For more information, visit the City Nature Challenge FAQs page. (https://citynaturechallenge.org/)

Join them for the 2022 City Nature Challenge in the Palouse Region of Washington and Idaho! Help them document the incredible biodiversity of the Palouse by making observations of any wild organisms in Latah or Whitman Counties from April 29 – May 2, 2022.

Return to Riverside Music Festival

From the 1930’s to the late 60’s Riverside was the place to see and be seen. George Jones, Johnny Cash, Hank Thompson, Faron Young, Jimmy Dickens, Tex Ritter, Hank Snow, Jim Reeves and so many more performed on stage. Part bar, part dance hall, it also hosted roller skating, car racing, rodeos & Native American gatherings. This and more were a part of what made Riverside a special place. Stories are still told of those days. When the building was burned in the early 70’s, it was the sad end to an era.

In 2016 a small group of people decided it was time to bring the magic of Riverside back. Using a forgotten park in the town of Potlatch, Idaho, the first Return to Riverside Music Festival was held. Four amazing bands, several food vendors, ice cold beer and historic displays were all set in place. 500 people carted in blankets and lawn chairs, children ran among the tall pines, friends shared a meal, neighbors raised beverages in toasts. The day was a hit. An annual event was born.

When & Where
Held the last Saturday of August, Return to Riverside Music Festival keeps growing in size, attracting bigger crowds and reeling in talented acts.
Canceled for 2020 because of COVID, but you can support us by stopping in at BlackBird at the Depot and buying a t-shirt!

SIGN-UP FOR PALOUSE PLEIN AIR 2022

PALOUSE PLEIN AIR: September 5 – 15, 2022

Palouse Plein Air is an annual painting event that takes place every September, with experiences including painting workshops and a juried exhibition at the Third Street Gallery inside Moscow City Hall.

Historic Moscow, Idaho and the beautiful Palouse are the perfect destination for plein air artists, and the annual Palouse Plein Air painting event connects artists with the region’s landscape and arts culture.  French for “open air,” the phrase “plein air” (pronounced plen-air) describes the act of painting outdoors. The outdoor experience on the Palouse is particularly rich, as its rolling hills, rivers, mountains, fields, farms, and homes tell the long history of the landscape.

Guided by the vision of the Moscow Arts Commission and University of Idaho art professor Aaron Cordell Johnson, Palouse Plein Air began in 2010, and the event continues to grow. A collaboration of community partners makes this growth possible; the City of Moscow Arts Department and the University of Idaho College of Art + Architecture work together to make a great event for artists and art lovers alike.

April 29 – September 1

Registration will be available online via Submittable. No emailed or paper registrations will be accepted. The registration form is available below, or by clicking this link: https://moscowarts.submittable.com/submit
