Antoine Peak Phase 3 Acquisition

Category Overview

Urban Wildlife Habitat projects fund close-to-home places to play and explore nature. As our urban areas are increasingly expanding and densifying, these grants protect important fish and wildlife habitat within five miles of densely populated areas, creating green refuges that help keep our ecosystems healthy and provide places to enjoy nature right in our backyards.

Project Highlights

This project acquired 338.75 acres on Antoine Peak, including the mountain summit, located outside of the cities of Spokane, Spokane Valley, Liberty Lake and Newman Lake. Spokane County has protected this land because of the critical nature of its habitat for wildlife, a million dollar viewshed, and to open up this premier “watchable wildlife” area to the nearly 1/2 million people of Spokane county.
