Other new buildings will include apartments, condos, warehouses and storage spaces.

Inland Northwest Land Conservancy opens

To boost efforts to acquire natural lands for management and preservation, the Inland Northwest Land Conservancy has opened an office in the Innovation Collective location at 418 E. Lakeside Ave. in downtown Coeur d'Alene.

The Conservancy has been actively protecting land ranging from forested mountainsides to vital waterways in North Idaho since 1997.

Learn how INLC is working "to keep Idaho Idaho" at an informal event 6-8 p.m. Tuesday. Light refreshments and beverages will be provided. RSVP at InlandNWLand.org/Events.

Conservation director Michael Crabtree is usually in the office Monday, Wednesday and Friday or by appointment unless he's in the field. Phone 208-925-2040. Check info@InlandNWLand.org.

R&R Northwest and Make It Messy opening

The children's activity center Make It Messy and the marine construction company R&R Northwest will open about July 1 in a new building at 1857 W. Hayden Ave.

Make It Messy is a blend between an arts and crafts space, sensory play and activities such as at a children's museum. People of all ages can express themselves creatively, expand their imaginations and stimulate their senses. It can host birthday parties or private family events through owner Heather Gillis.

Hours will be 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. weekdays, 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Check www.makeitmessycda.com.
