We invite you to celebrate the natural beauty and joys of Medical Lake with a library-sponsored community event at Waterfront Park. May is a great time for fly fishing and bird watching so come to the park to learn more about these enjoyable pastimes. Local expert, Randy Osborne, biologist with the Dept. of Fish and Wildlife will talk about Medical Lake, the kinds of fish to be caught in the lake, when the lake is stocked, and tips on how to catch them at 12 pm.
If you’ve never fly fished before and always wanted to learn more, people from the Spokane Fly Fishers group will have lots of great information on how to and even give you a chance to try your hand at casting. They will offer 2 sessions, at 1:00 and 2:00.
If birds are more your thing than fish, then come take a walk with Fran from the Spokane Audubon Society. Medical Lake is lucky to have a paved path along the lake and Fran will provide information about the birds and wildflowers you may see as you stroll along the pathway. Fran offers two walks at 1:30 and 2:30.
If all this sounds like a lot –don’t worry, hot dogs and chips will be served between 1 and 3 to keep you energized. We encourage you to bring your own water bottle to wash down your lunch. But if you’re one of the first 100 people to stop by, you will receive one of your very own Spokane County Library District bottles to keep!
Want to learn more about the library? We’ll be happy to answer any questions for you. We can even sign you up for your own library card (don’t forget picture I.D.) and make a bookmark at our kids’ activity table.
Thanks to the Medical Lake Parks and Recreation Dept., we’ll have use of the shelter from 12-4. Plan to spend your day with the library at Waterfront Park on Saturday May 10. We can’t wait to see you there!
